I don't wear a mask..to hot and cumbersome...but ask me how many times the Mom's at school have laughed at my green or blue nose...LOL...Try airbrushung in a separate room ...I also tum the PSI down so you aren't spraying as heavily everywhere.It has helped.Otherwise you can't totally eliminate it unless you have a properly vented booth.

I have the most awesome tool for this problem!! I have the airbrush booth from cakesafe.com - for the first time in my airbrushing life, I don't get color up my nose or anywhere in the room. I can now airbrush without having to clean for hours! I LOVE it! Check it out - it works perfectly! I think anyone who has an airbrush needs one of these things, it really is worth every penny. (and no, I don't work for them) I just love their quality products!

You can try it, but you still get it everywhere with a box. (been there done that!)

I airbrush with my cake inside a big clear plastic tub (Rubbermaid type) turned on its side. That helps a lot with overspray. Doesn't help with the red boogers though!

And just think, if you have red "buggars" what color is in your lungs? I am really glad I have that airbrush booth. Scott (the man who designed the airbrush booth) at Cake Safe really puts a lot of thought into the things he makes for us cake decorators.

There was a tiny amount of the color right in front of the box (under where the filters are). I now put a towel right there and just toss it in the washer when I am done. I get NO color in my nose (or anywhere else) when I use the booth!
