Hubby got me an airbrush for Xmas. I haven't even used it yet. I will try it out on my daughter's bday cake later this month. The question I have is, can you use luster dust in it? If so, does it need to be thinned out or added to something to make it a liquid or just pour the dust into the canister? TIA!

Don't just pour the dust into the cannister or you will clog the airbrush....Mix the dust in a small container with a clear based alcohol like vodka or white rum...some also use clear extracts...the point being it has to disslove in the liquid...alcohol with evaporate so if you are worried about the taste or smell it goes completely away...mix it up really good so it is thin to run through the airbrush..clean it out really well after.

Thanks for the help. I know about using vodka, I use it all the time on my cakes. Wasn't sure if the luster dust needed to be thinned out with it or not. Again, thanks.
