Do any of you own the Sugarveil Air Pen?  If so, how do you like it and is there anyway it would be interchangeable as an air brush?

I have it.  Doesn't it work the reverse of an airbrush?  ( I have an airbrush.)  One sucks in, one blows out.  That said, I found the sugarveil pen useless, so being able to use it as a small airbrush would be lovely.

Hi Leah

What don't you like about the pen?  You said it was useless - how so?

Just curious as to what's wrong with the pen. 2 peeps have said it is useless but not why.  For $220 it should do alot more than be useless.

it did not work ergo useless

the one i used at the demo worked -- it was handed to me in working order and i thought it was so cool i bought it  but once i got home no matter how many times i tried and how much direction i received it did not work -- nothing workable came out of the little hole -- i don't know what's wrong with it

funny you should ask -- on another cake board long ago someone wanted to buy it even though i gave full disclosure  she still wanted it -- she said she would use it to pick up and apply pearls at least --

Debbie, the AirPen Piping Dispenser draws lines and dots with all types of icings - it pushes rather than sprays (like an airbrush does). Here's a video that shows it in action:

Can the Air Pen be used with an airbrush compressor with adjustable pressure? Is it possible to purchase an airpen without the compressor?

Despite the bad reviews, I think I may try it.  I'm impressed by -K8mephis's review about their customer service and that they have a rep on here working towards a solution.

Some of their other products look interesting too.

Hello Czargo,

The AirPen comes with a special quality compressor because when most larger compressors are turned down to the psi the AirPen requires, they sputter and don't provide a good, steady airflow,. This steady airflow is important, as it gives you the nice smooth lines and perfect rounded dots you want when drawing monograms, designs, and tiny details with your icings.

Also, watch our Facebook page this week - sugarveilicing - we'll have a special discount on the AirPen which will be good thru this weekend!

Thank you for your question -

Michele at SugarVeil
