So I airbrushed a cake this weekend and it sat for 3 or 4 days and it was STILL wet!! WTH I aribrushed it on a mmf covered cake! This is the 3rd cake Ive airbrushed and it always stays wet! Am I doing something wrong??
Is it really humid in your house? Was your cake cold or frozen? Are you putting a super thick coat on at one time?
What airbrush color are you using for it?
Wan't humid, cake was taken out of the refridgerater, maybe an hour inbetween taking it out and spraying it! I used americolor paint! It was a little thick (Covered entire cake) but i still would think after 4 days it would be dry!
There must be some sort of humidity as it will dry if the air quality is dry.Also if you sprayed heavy coats that can contribute to it as well.Try putting a fan on it far enough away as to not blow dust etc but enough to give it a breeze.I use americolor all the time and the only time it did that to me and appeared wet was this summer on a very hot humid day...I put it downstairs in my basement for a few hours and it started to dry out.
Question: Are you allowing each coat to dry before applying more? If you just spray & spray to get to the color you want in one spray...it will stay wet. Gotta use it little at a time.
Hope That Makes Sense
Yes that does!! Thank you guys will definitely try these suggestions next time!
WOW! I have never heard of that before! I spray heavy coats often (I have no patience) and it always dries! I use the "starter set" from ChefMaster but it is running out.
i would think if taking the cake after refrigerating it that the condensation would cause the MMF to become sticky...but after that long it seems kinda weird :p
Could you try airbrushing a thin layer of vodka to help dry it out?
Oooh! I didn't think of the vodka good Idea!
