I love the look of airbrushing, but I'm wondering how much of a mess does it make and is it worth it?
As it is I hate using spray can food color (though I love the look!) because no matter what I do I seem never to be able to contain it just to the cake and wind up wiping up food coloring from the backsplash and everything nearby for days.
Would a booth really contain the overspray? What about large cakes?
Can the mess be avoided or do you just live with it because you love to airbrush?
I bought one of those 3 panel folding display things - they sell them at Walmart or Hobby Lobby or Michaels for doing school presentations and stuff. I cut mine in half crossways (maintaining the 3 stand up panels) and glued part of a cheap plastic tablecloth over it. Instant mess reducer I just set it up behind the cake, spray it, wipe it off, fold it up and store it away till the next time.
tiger, I LIKE that idea! I keep a cardboard box on hand that's my "spray box."
Tiger, I do the same thing. It helps a lot.
Hmmmmm. A spray box really works to keep it contained! Nice to know.
Okay, now to find the perfect airbrush set up to put on my wishlist. Any recommendations? I don't want to spend tooooo much, since I'm a beginner. Thanks everyone
