The max. pressure you want on the compressor is 30 psi or it will blow holes in the icing. Air brushes come in all price ranges it just depends on the quality of the finished product. My preference is the gravity feed (cup on top). I have an aztek 470 and I love it because it doesn't have a spattered look but it was a little expensive.

Here is a thread on the topic, and someone recently said that Bronwen Weber suggested the Airbrush City GD-100. I am getting it with an adjustable pressure (has a regulator) compressor from Harbor Freight.

i got the set from decopac, with the cute little purple compressor....

i have used it almost daily for 7 years with no problems...the airbrush doesn't clog, even when you use metallics.

although, i'm going to get the one mentioned above as well (browen webber is such a great artist, it may be better with detail work than mine).

Shell, New here but been decorating cakes for awhile. I also have the DecoPac unit - never a problem. Make sure you get the Badger gun DecoPac sells though there service is incredible. It's the 100GB.

by the way shell I know I may be speaking out of turn here being new and all - but I had a AB city airbrush made in China and it didn't work. I had to return three fo them before I got a good one. Don't want to be negative nellie, but Badger, Thayer & Chandler, Paasche are all proven brands made in USA and after having nothing but success with the Badger i got from DecoPac I highly recommend it to other decorators I know.
