My co-worker and I are both learning how to use airbrushes (him for plastic models, me for the same + cake decorating ... don't worry, I use different airbrushes!). In his research it was suggested he purchase the Iwata Airbrush Table-Top Cleaning Station. He seems to like it a lot and I was wondering if anyone in the cake-world uses it.
Does anyone have this product or something similar? Do you think it's worth it for cake decorating? I do understand how to clean an airbrush without this! I was just wondering if someone thinks it's an incredible time-saver or totally worth it, etc.
AI have never used it, but I saw someone in a YouTube video use it and thought it looked very handy. I had an airbrush model that snapped off and it was nothing to just walk over to the sink and spray it out, but now I have one that screws on, and it is a PITB to unscrew it, and screw it back on, so I am definitely interested in getting something.... How much is that?
$17.40 on amazon.com ... not too bad, right?
ANot bad at all! I read that it is heavy enough to use as a stand, as well. That is handy. I ran across this video when researching though ;-) http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=pTPxp647Zac&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DpTPxp647Zac
IMO - it's just another piece of equipment that needs to be cleaned at the end of the day - and is more limiting than a plastic grocery bag taped to the counter edge.
I can go through a lot of grocery bags for $17.
PS: I have one collecting dust somewhere in my studio.....
Good point! Thanks, Lisa; I know you're pro! I'll see you around That Takes The Cake in Austin in a few weeks! :) Hurray for recycling!
Glad to be helpful.
And I'm looking forward to Austin!
Just hoping I can get my entry there in one piece.
