I am looking to spray a cake for the first time this week... Any pointers?

Also I need the cake to be copper in color. Have any of you ever used the Amerimist copper by americolor? If so do you have any photos of how the color turns out?

Thanks!

Also how far does e color go, I don't airbrush, intact I'm borrowing a unit from a friend, should I buy just a small 1oz jar, or go for the larger?

Make sure the fondant you cover in is like the color of copper..a browny color.It will show the copper spray really well.Spray in layers..do not try to spray heavy all at one or it will puddle and drip.Keep the gun farther away and turn down the PSI and do sweeps of spray instead of all just going all over randomly..Depends how big the cake is..a small bottle will not cover that much if it is a larger cake...

I have never used the copper, but I do not get "good mileage" from the Americolor sheens. I would advise buying a 4.5 ounce or larger if you want good coverage. They spray very well with no clogging for me, but it does take way more product than a regular airbrush color. Maybe someone will come along with info on the color.

The cake will be no larger than a 8" & a 6" stacked i was about to place an order for a 4.5 oz bottle I can't imagine i would need more than that, What do you all think? <id rather have too much than not enough but i dont want buy a lot if i dont need to since i don't actually own a brush yet! icon_wink.gif

I would think that a 4.5 oz bottle would be fine for a 6" and 8".
