My Mum's offered me her airbrush to use for cake decorating, but I just wanted to double check whether or not it can be used. Do I need a special one for the food colouring or will an art one be ok to use? Also what's the best food colouring to use for it?
Thanks for the help!
As long as its clean you can use it for food but you cant go from art airbrushing to food and then back again because I would think some residue from the paints my stay. I might be wrong though. But it doesnt have to be a special airbrush to be used for cakes. The best is Americolor airbrushing colors.
As far as I know as long as you use cake food coloring for airbrushing you are fine. I use Americolor airbrushing paint and love it.
If she is giving it to you, that's great! I agree, clean it well and use it. If you are going to be sharing it, you may consider buying a second 'pen' (is that what it is called?) and then there wouldn't be the bother. I am not sure but I think you can buy just the pens without having to buy a whole compressor and everything.
Thanks everyone! I'll have a look into the Americolor range, fingers crossed I can get it in the UK (I'm sure someone will supply it!!!). Yeahh it's really generous of Mum to offer it to me, she said she never uses it and she thinks she only used it once years and years ago! But yes, I'll give it a very good clean before using it!
