I had to mess with since I promised Texas Rose I would bring it to her house, when I get remedial training for the 5 petal rose. I hadn't touched it since my basic airbrush class 3 weeks ago.
I love the idea I can layer my colors and then dust as well.
I can't wait to figure out the adjustable needle on my brush. Theoretically, I will never have to color G P again. Whoo Hooo!
Which brand do you have?
I bought it from Airbrush City. It's a GD102.
I bought a package so I ended up with a 2nd airbrush that has jars and is not gravity fed.
My 102 has an adjustable needle. The 101 is the same thing but does finer work.
Mine has a huge cup so you definitely need to buy Vodka to help clean it between colors. The airbrush cleaner will cost you a fortune. I use the cleaner for the last clean.
What I like specifically is my compressor. It's adjustable, so I can actually use it for tires that the big garage compressor won't handle because the pressure is to low. It's adjustable, obviously. I just set the compressor at 20 psi and make sure I don't have kinks in the hose. It also doesn't run constantly. That noise just makes me nuts.
The only thing I want to change for cake decorating is the hose. I bought braided and now I wish I had rubber or nylon, easier cleanup for buttercream work.
Sounds great! Hope you have lots of beautiful creations using it.
