Trying to decide for my first airbrush what sizes to get for the regular colors and the sheens. How much coverage does a .7 oz bottle, 4.5 oz bottle and 9 oz bottle cover on a cake.
The .7 oz bottles are very little ..they are designed to be like a trial size.I use the 4.5 and 9 oz bottles and they last me quite awile.I use my airbrush every week.The 9 oz are quite big for commercial use.If you are going to get a sheen I would suggest the Pearl and silver..I use the pearl all the time on nearly every cake!Silver and Gold are good to have to do the accents on specialty cakes.
I agree with Kiddiekakes - go with a larger size. I am a newbie, so I have more waste and overspray than an experienced airbrusher. The sheens are wonderful, but it took me over half a little bottle to spray a silver sheen over a fish. I was just silvering up the colors below, too, not trying to make it totally silver. Admittedly, my garage floor still sports silver shimmers , but.....
