Spray into a box to avoid overspray and don't get too close. Practice a bit first to get the hang of it.

YES, don't spray too close. I 'v had my airbrush machine for a couple of years now, I stopped using it because I was getting blotches and pin holes, the cakes really looked bad.
One day I decided to start using it again, I held the sprayer at a distance and made longer strokes, the cake turned out great (I watch a lot of Ace Of Cakes). I use it more now.
O- I also put news paper on the table for the over-spray.
But do practice with it.
Good Luck

You can also practice on coloring pages to stay inside the lines. You want to start and finish off the cake In other words start sparying before you reach the edge of the cake and don't stop until your off the other edge. I agree with leahs about practicing and spraying inside of a box or you will have overspray everywhere.
