I'm going to be getting my first airbrush. Any suggestions on the best one for your first, also on a budget so can't be real expensive.
Has anyone used Americolors airbrush. Any advise on the pros and cons of the $69.00 vs the $99.00 one.
Or do you have any suggestions of other brands?
Thanks so much in advance for any help
I bought my first kit on eBay from TCP Global and was relatively happy. I don't think it's the airbrush itself that's important - I think it's the compressor. All of the these little ones that run 20-30 PSI are adequate for food colorings, but because they have no air storage, the stream of air was occasionally a little intermittent. Recently I went out to my local hardware store and bought a 1 gallon pancake compressor and a pressure regulator and connected my airbrush to that and am much happier.
Having said that - I'm actually glad I started with a smaller $69 kit first because it gave me the feel of how to use it, it had all the pieces so I didn't have to worry about whether the connections fit or not, and I started to get the hang of it without worrying about blowing a hole in my icing from too much air pressure. I'm now back selling my original kit on eBay.
