i just bought that prevail sprayer that showed in amazing wedding cakes to use instead of an airbrush. does anyone know if i have to dilute americolor pearl airbrush sheen when i put it in the unit? sprays really thick even when far away..does anyone have experience using it to know whether a real airbrush is alot finer or not?...thanks everyone!

I use it all the time and have never had any trouble with it being thick.... do you think it may be too old? You can thin it out with vodka....but I may would just return it if it's thick.

I bought one years ago at Home Depot, so you might check with them. I tried to use it to paint some woodwork, but couldn't use it correctly. It didn't work for me. I don't want to start a big discussion/argument, but I think there was a discussion on CC that it wasn't foodsafe??? we go....Yikes! icon_lol.gif

I have a regular airbrush and just used the Americolor pearl sheen tonight on some cookies. It sprayed pretty darn fine to me. I actually went over the cookies 2 times to get a bit more shimmer.

I don't know if the color was old or not. When I shook my bottle it sounded like shaking a carton of orange juice.

If your color isn't old, could you run some warm water through the unit? I'm not sure how it works. Just a thought...
