Has anyone airbrushed modelling chocolate? I'm making some fill in flowers out of MC and would love to just airbrush them (am practicing with both mediums), can it be done? or do I paint each flower individually?

Also, what should I do if the MC seems too hard? microwave it? I've made a few colours this morning and some have turned out beautifully and some too hard as in they hardened within minutes and yet I used the exact same measurements and recipes for all.

Plus, I'm not sure how to store MC decorations, is it like fondant? I store my fondant decorations in an empty cc box, will the same work for MC? 

I appreciate any and all answers.

I microwave MC for a few seconds to soften. I have yet to paint it but I have used luster dusts to add color and it works nicely. I have a bass fish cake in my gallery that is done this way.

Thanks, I'm hoping to get an airbrush machine soon so I wondered about using it with MC.
