I am looking to purchase an air brush machine. Can I use any airbrush machine from Pearl Art Supplies and just use the edible paint colors. Or do I have to purchase one from a cake decorating supply site, which cost extremely more $$$
Thank you for asking this. I'm wondering the same thing, so any responses would be greatly appreciated.
My machine is from a hobby shop/toy shop. My Dad bought it for me as a gift. I've never used anything with it but edible colors. I then bought a small "donut" air compressor with a regulator so I could control the PSI. My whole system cost about $300. I agree that it's a little pricey but I didn't pay for it and every single piece is metal so I love that I will/should never have to replace it.
But, yes, you can get a airbrush machine that isn't from a cake site.
Thanks so much!
Cake decorating airbrush system with a set of americolor colors cost 129.99 at amazon. And you can find multi purpose airbrush for 79.99
I just got one for my bday. Do you have to by special food colors to use of can I just water down the colors I normally use? I have looked for special food color but no one around me seems to sell anything other that what I already use?
I got one from Harbor Freight for my birthday with a compressor for less than $100. I use vodka and add my gel colors. Hubby cut the side off a big box so I can spray inside the box so the over spray dos not get every where. I keep any left over color in a small plastic bottle.
