Help! I don't know which cups to buy...I've read many of the threads and will be purchasing an Aztek 4709 airbrush, but don't know which kind of additional color cups to purchase. The gravity feed? Which size? I'm new at this, and so would be spraying a whole cake, no larger than a 10" round. Thanks!

I use the little gray plastic cups with the lids on them. I think it's the smallest cup in the set.

I just looked at them again- so you don't use the gravity feed type? They are white cups...I would think that is the way to go, or no?

I notice with the kit the cups are white- gravity maybe I just get extra of those...

The littlest cup that came with my kit (I think it has a gray or black bottom) is also gravity feed. I find the white cups to be to big.

Okay, so the gravity feed cups came today- I just starting laughing! I don't know anything about according to the pictures on the internet, I was expecting a cup about the size of a golf ball or so- they are the size of my thumb! Are they going to be too small to spray a 10" square cake- will I have to keep filling it?

Yes, you will have to keep filling them. If they were as big as a golf ball I think the gun would be hard to control as it wouldn't balance well. JMO

Okay, thanks! The airbrush comes tomorrow and so I'll be able to start to practice.
