Are you using it for flowers or to spray on a cake? If you can't find liquid airbrush colors, then I would use a dust color with either vodka or other clear alcohol (not isopropol - this is NOT foodsafe) or with a clear extract.

I'm not sure what rejuvenator liquid is, sorry. The blue rose in my picture was done with blue petal dust mixed with vodka. I use vodka exclusively and it works really well as it evaporates and leaves the color behind. If I'm airbushing color onto buttercream I buy liquid airbrush colors (from Kopykake)
