Does anyone have a specific airbrush kit that they could recommend along with a couple of hints on how to get started with this medium of decorating?
It looks like I might be needing this to work on an upcoming cake and I want to be prepared!
Thanks! Nicole icon_biggrin.gif

TCP global. Abd Kit 20 for me! Love it....absolutely love it. It also came with large bottles of americolor. Great for beginner but not the cheapest youhttp://www.tcpglobal.com/airbrushdepot/cakesys.aspx can get.

Yeah, this next website isn't really for cakers, but it really helped me understand a lot of things.

Thanks, I checked out the website and the prices didn't even seem that bad to me. I'm up in Canada so I don't know if that company ships up here or if they have a distributor locally. I'm going to email them and find out, thanks again!

Hello.....oh yes,I can give you some advice, basicly,any airbrush that you are comfortable with will work (at 20 PSI's or lower air pressure.)most can.
Things to keep in mine how ever are: Is Airbrush useful for right handed and left handed persons
.....do you plan on airbrushing caKe laying flat or will you have cake on angle to paint ( if flat, get airbrush that has a covered paint cup, If cake will be at a angle,and the only way i found to do that is to build a cake Esel yourself, I have designed one that i soon will have available(there are non on market) made out of a box.
......If you can, try to chill cake for at least 15 minute to aid with adhesion of paint and give surface a more firm surface.
That should get you started, any other questions, give me a whistle!
