There is no reason why not. I use watered down gel colors when I am out of airbrush colors. They work in a pinch. I will probably try vodka next time, I had never thought of it. But I use vodka with pearl dust, and spray it.

I always use gel colors with vodka. I make it up using some empty flavoring bottles. It helps to make the colors before you need and let them sit awhile that way all the gel dissolves completely and I immediately flush the airbrush when I'm done. I've had no problems.

What exactly does it do? Make the colors hold, or make them brighter?

It would make them the right consistency. As in, airbrush colours are liquid.

Sharon Zambito uses pearl dust and vodka, I am sure, for her lustred bows at least.
