HELP!! I am new to airbrushing and I have a cake due this Saturday that has to be airbrushed. My question is...how much airbrush color will I need to cover a 10" round cake plus a few accent pieces?? I could only find the 0.65oz in the color I needed at my local supply shop. Is this enough? If not, I will need to order it online ASAP, but it will cost me lots!! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

The small bottle should be plenty and then some. Pearl and sheen colors take a bit more than regular colors (for me, at any rate), but even then, it should do for one 10" round and accent pieces. Finish the round first, then do the accent pieces.

Thank you soooo much!! It is a lavender sheen color, so I will be sure to do the cake first!! I hope it's enough to do the accents as well... Thanks again for your help!!
