My mother in law said she had something for me if I wanted it... Turns out it's a compressor and airbrush! Woooooooo!!!!! New toy to play with and new skill to learn!
Ooooooooo My mouth is watering cant wait to get one!!!!! Have fun with your new toy!!! Show us something spectacular when you do it!!!
I got one too~! no clue how to use it~ lol
Ooohhh no wonder you are so excited You are going to have lots of fun now.
As to how to use: Start by drawing lines. Keep practicing until you can make a straight line all acorss a page that is as thin as a pencil line.
The farther away from the cake the wider the line will be; the closer you get the thinner it will be.
Always start spraying (pull the trigger) *before* you reach the edge of the paper and stop *after* the paper ends. Next get out some patterened paper towels &/or coloring book pages and just start playing trying to fill in any pictures. That's just a few points to help get you started
Make your self an enclosure by using a big cardboard box w/one side cut out OR buy one of those tri-fold display boards (you can get them even at the $ stores these days or try Michael's or Hobby Lobby). Put down lots of newspaper to help absorb overspray. YES, there *will* be overspray no matter how careful you are.
I remember reading about one gal who did a large cake sprayed red and later found pink all over her whole house - even upstairs - on her *ALL WHITE* furniture and rugs because she sprayed her cake near an airconditioning vent! !
Oh what a wonderful surprise! Have fun with your new toy!!
