Has anyone purchased the Duff's Airbrush system? If so, do you like it? I see it at Michael's and was wondering if its a good system/investment.
Thanks

I don't think it is worth the money even with the coupon. I would think it would be handy to carry on a cake delivery if you need to do any repairs or touch ups. Below are some side feed airbrushes which I think are good. I think the first one is the one that Roland Winbeckler uses.

I am new to using the airbrush ..and I bought the Duff airbrush system from Michaels.I got for 50% off with the coupon. I think it works fine for me being a beginner with no experience with airbrusing. It's easy to use, and clean. It also does a wonderful job covering the cakes that i have covered with it. I'll post them in my gallery (Elmo and the Roller Skate ). Maybe once i'm more experienced I'll look into upgrading.

I recieved a Duff's airbrush for christmas last year )DH is a good man ) anyway I have just recently gotten around to using it and am having a few issues with the amicolors and wilton colors not clogging up to sprayer :/ not very happy with that. I have been told that you can use vodka to thin it but have issues with using it, I don't drink for one and I really don't know the effects that it has from using it! I know that they say it diapates but I am concerned serving cakes that I apply color to for children and persons on medication. Is there something else I can use or a site that would help me understand this better? Anything you have would help out.
