I am wondering if I have to buy a certain type of airbrush such as one online at a "cake" site or in a "cake shop" or can the airbrushes from like hobby lobby and micheals work for cake work.
you don't need a specialized airbrush, but you do need a compressor that blows at 30 psi or lower or you'll likely blow your icing right off your cake.
The ones made for cake decorating do work much better for what we do.
Get one that has the 'ink cup' on the top....not a jar that hangs down
I have a badger 360 that does both gravity feed and bottle feed. I love it. I got it at Michaels for 50% off witha coupon. I got my compressor at Harbour Freight and have an airbrush from there that came with the compressor.
THANKS FOR REPLYING. I missed the recent 50%off sale.
I have to agree with trumpetmidget. I too have a Badger 360 that I bought at Michael's with 50% off and works just wonders for me. The compressor I got at Northern tools for about 30 dollars on sale back in December last year.
