Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me airbrush advice.
I have been decorating cakes on and off for years and just invested in my first airbrush since I am tired of hand-painting and dusting large areas. I practiced with the regular AmeriColor airbrush colors. That went fine. However, when I switched over to a bronze or silver color, the results were uneven and blotchy. More like wet beads of color instead of an even coverage.
Has anyone experienced this? Is it something I'm doing wrong with my airbrush? I'm literally an airbrush newbie so I'm just now learning my way around the device.
Thanks in advance!

my first guess, could be you didn't mix the colors well enough before adding them to the brush.... or could there have been shortening on your surface that you sprayed?

Also as a general side note... when you spray for coverage, make a circular swirling motion with your brush as you spray <IE dont spray in streaks or lines> icon_wink.gif
