Hi just wandering if you can use a 100psi compressor for airbrushing on cakes. any info would be appreciated. Thank you
I do - have a small 1 gal pancake compressor that supposedly has a max PSI of 100 but that is too much pressure for cakes I think - I can turn it down to 40PSI but that still seemed like too much. In order not to use that much, I actually bought a small pressure regulator at my local hardware store that reduces the pressure. There was a cheap one with no gauge for about $10 but I bought one for $20 that has a pressure gauge on it. It connects between the airhose and the airbrush (with the right size adapter 1/4" to 1/8") so I can turn the pressure to whatever I want - been using about 20PSI for routine stuff.
I ALSO HAVE , AND USE 20PSI. BUT IF I WANT TO BLOW OFF ICING CAN TURN IT UP,,,,,,
You guys are great and I am learning so much from you thank you again.
I believe the ideal pressure to airbrush cakes is about 7-10PSI. It really all depends on what you are trying to blow through the airbrush.
I know it requires higher pressure when airbrushing paint or nail polish (which are thicker mediums). But since food coloring is very thin you only need minimal amount of pressure. HTH
