I am ready to branch out and try something new with my cake decorating. I saw a post on CC once or twice regarding airbrush systems purchased quite inexpensively at Harbor Freight Tools. (couldn't find them doing a search)
I went yesterday but am confused as to exactly what I need. Could anyone please help? TIA.
Shamelessly bumping myself. Please help me if you can. Much appreciated.
I purchased KopyKake airbrush from sugarcraft and I love it. While I was moving the KopyKake was in a box somewhere so then I just went to an airbrush store and purchased a mini compressor that came with a hose and then I purchased I think its called a Talon airbrush. The mini compressor felt more industrial to me, a little more intimidating than the KopyKake. I hope this helps.
Hello! I took a class with Bronwen Webber, she highly recommends going to airbrushcity.com.... they have an actual kit to make airbrushing easy, it has everything you need in it! Try that!
I don't know about Harbor Freight but I myself went onto ebay in search for one, with not much money an desperate for one I was able to find one. If you go under airbrush/guns/compressors and search you will find a whole bunch. I was hesitant at first, but I decided to do things my way. I bought the dual ab gun for 14.99 and a hose usually comes with it and I found a compressor no more than 50 psi you want one between 30-50 or it will blow your icing away. So I also found a small compressor for $20. And I love it. Works great, and I didn't spend an arm and a leg for it. Another suggestion I've heard on cc is going to Michael's I now they have one and just use your 40 or 50% coupon on it. You can propbably get it for 60-80 bucks using your coupon.
I just bought a complete kit w/12 "paints" from this store on E-Bay for $110. Check them out, they have great prices. http://stores.ebay.com/TCPGlobal-AutoBodyDepot_Cake-Decorating-Bakery-Suppl_W0QQcolZ4QQdirZ1QQfsubZ861461014QQftidZ2QQtZkm
