I have no clue what airbrush you are using, but I only use airbrush colors with mine, never gel.

Is it food safe?

You should use airbrush colours. Americolour makes some. I have a few brushes and I have one like this as a back up as it not as fine of a mist as others but usable. Make sure your icing is dry. If you must dilute your colours use alcohol and experiment with consistencies. maybe spread some icing on the back of a cookie sheet and play with it.

I think you would use any clear alcohol, much like mixing luster dust? Also, if you buy shimmer airbrush colors, I thin those down with vodka so it doesn't clog my airbrush...
