Has anyone used the airbrush that Duff Goldman has put out? I saw one a Michaels today and was considering buying it with one of the 40% off coupons as this would make it more reasonably priced. But I didn't want to waste my money if it was garbage. I wouldn't be using it a lot, just occasionally. Thanks in advance
AI'm also thinking about buying the same one from Michaels so I'm going to follow this post.
I've been coveting an airbrush for awhile, and received the Duff airbrush kit for Christmas from my daughter. I know it was bought with a 50% off coupon. Online you can get airbrush kits, many of which include some colours, for cheaper than the full price at Michaels. Anyway, I was pleased as punch. Mainly because I didn't have to pay for it.
I haven't used it for a cake yet (I'm just a hobby decorator, so don't do a ton of cakes), but have played with it a bit, practiced with it on paper, plus watched and read as much as I can online about airbrushing.
My feeling is that the Duff machine is good as a starter. It will give me something to practice with, and, with practice, will perform as expected, but if you want to do a lot of really, really fine detail, I believe there's probably better kits out there. Particularly if you're an artist, which I'm not.
This is one series of YouTube videos I watched that I found really helpful. He does address the Duff machine, and others like it.
This link is for the first of 7 videos that he has done.
Anyway, I think for any application I plan on doing, the Duff will be fine.
