Does any one know where I can find edible paint? I have the one for airbrush, But I need paint I can brush on. Thanks in advance for your help.
You can use gel paste colors and mix them with high-% clear alcohol (e.g. strong vodka, everclear) or lemon extract (it's clear and has a high alcohol content). Paints right on. Needs to be alcohol because the liquid evaporates off rather quickly. Higher % alcohol=faster evaporation, less sogginess to whatever you're painting on.
you can also use the airbrush paint with a paint brush and brush it on.
Thank you soooo much, one more question...I looked at that link & what does it mean when it says 1 part or 2 part...what does part mean?
LOL are you talking about the ganache thread I posted in? I just noticed that was you I'm gonna assume the answer is yes and I'll answer you over there
Hahaha, opps sorry I had both windows open, haha
Luster dust and lemon juice or vodka can be painted on as well. Best of luck to you
I use gel colors and luster dust with vodka and I love how much it resembles regular old watercolors. YAY!
I actually prefer to use airbrush colors since they are already in liquid form and are easier to blend, etc. I have a little one ounce dropper/bottle filled with vodka for diluting...........this is not to be confused with the one gallon bottle of vodka used for dealing with the kids until it's time for them to go back to school.

I agree. I used it on the skate board cake I did and the spots on my cow. It is already ready to go, no need to thin down.

Thanks to the replys, This helped a lot. So did the Vodka part. Lol
Got a question...I just airbrushed a cake on the icing, no fondant, it looks terrible!! Am I not supposed to do it on icing or am I doing it wrong?
Describe what it did to the cake. Maybe if we see of here what it did we can help you decorate around it. That is my favorite part of cakes you can always cover a mistake. I have used both BC and Fondant. I am particular to fondant because it is smooth and my BC icing skills are still something I need to work on.
A tip- Any flaw in the icing or fondant show up when you airbrush or so I have found. But you can use this to your advantage too. You can create deptha nd dimension by purposly applying indentions and designs so that they show when you do airbrush. Lemons to lemonade so to speak.
The whole thing looks horrible, its cracked & got spray spots everywhere...
