Help! how do i use the confectioner's glaze in my airbrush gun? i have the glaze and the thinner but i don't know how to mix them. is it half and half.

I was told confectioner's glaze will make your cakes look "wet" or shiny is that right?

I am making a purse, which by the way is not coming out at all like what i envisioned =) and wanted to make it shine with the confectioner's glaze.

Thanks for your fast response.

I'm sure that others will chime in, but I would never put confectioner's glaze, thinned or not, thru my airbrush.

That stuff is like lacquer or glue--it can ruin brushes if not washed out immediately. I can't imagine what it would do to the needle of an airbrush.

I'd suggest painting it on or just steaming the fondant.

I too wouldn't put anything else in an airbrush except airbrush color...
