does anyone else have problems with airbrushing? The results look slightly "spotty"... I've changed the nozzle and needle. It is a kopykake...

Usually the spotting is when you're concentrating on one spot for too long rather than keeping the airbrush moving. At least that's what happens to me. icon_razz.gif

Practice. Also, when you are spraying, do not start spraying directly on the cake - start a little off and keep it moving across. If you start by pointing right where you are aiming, you may get the spot. I would be some books on airbrushing and practice on paper towels. That's how I started. I'm not great, so hopefully someone else will have some other ideas, but this is what works for me. HTH

I think I know what you are saying...try turning the knob up to a higher pressure air flow but then just don't push the button on the airbrush very lower air speeds sometimes it tends to be a little spotty (I assume you are speaking of very tiny spots as if the mist is not fine enough, rather than spots caused by uneven airbrushing.)

I have the Kopykake machine and I do get that at times.....especially dark colors over white.
