You can buy colors just for airbrushing. They won't clog up your airbrush. It is not recommended to use regular colors in your airbrush.

You should get proper edible airbrushing paints. Regular colours aren't made for airbrush use ... Wilton-type will be too thick and liquid colours are too thin and either one could damage, if not ruin, the air brush. It's always best to use what's recommended for any tool. If you ruin the air brush by not using the recommended paints, you have no recourse with the company. It's your fault and they won't fix or replace it. Better safe than sorry.

And, at the very least, it probably won't give you the right look on your cake, since it's not made for spraying.

Hi. I am new at airbrushing too. When I bought my airbrush off eBay it came with 12 Americolor Airbrush colors. They are very vibrant colors and cover very well. Hope this helps. thumbs_up.gif
