I was thinking about getting an airbrush machine.  I don't have a clue what to purchase.  Anyone have any advice of what I should or should not buy?

Hi

 

I've been looking at Iwata which seem to be excellent. I currently have a set of 6 brushes which are low end, bought second hand, and work with a bottle of colouring underneath the gun. This isn't ideal.

 

When I save to get the Iwata ones I want (they're not cheap like mine!) I will definitely be getting the gravity fed ones as you can use a drop or two of colouring in the top, as opposed to having to fill a bottle up so that the syphon action works!

Thank you Lizzybug78, I know nothing about them and have no clue what would be a good one.  I just think one would be nice to have sometimes.

I bought the Dinkydoodle one which I love and can not praise enough.

 

Here is a cake I recently did with it. Cake and board were white before I started.

 

  

 

I'm not sure how to post photos so hope this comes through.

Thank you Claire 138, I'll have to check that one out also.  Just afraid I'm going to make the wrong choice.  I guess I want know until I try one.  Live and learn.   :)

AI purchased one on Amazon. It was on the lower end price wise, but it has turned out to be a really good machine. I just make sure to clean it really well after every use. I don't use too often but love it when I do. Glad I didn't invest too much $!
