I was wondering if I added a little drop of vodka to my airbrush coloring would the vodka make the color dry faster on my cake after spraying? The last cake I airbrushed with just the coloring it seemed to take forever to dry. Or how could I get my cake to dry faster?

if it took a long time to dry it sounds like you put on a lot of color (i'm guessing to get a dark color) Do it in layers instead of trying to get your color all at once. Let each layer dry (which really only takes a few minutes if you do it in layers) then do the next layer.

I use vodka all the time to thin the Americolors that I use in my airbrush. Don't know that it helps with drying time (leily is right...definitely work in layers); but it helps decrease clogs and splattersicon_smile.gif
