I am new to using the airbrush ..and I bought the Duff airbrush system from Michaels.I got for 50% off with the coupon. I think it works fine for me being a beginner with no experience with airbrusing. It's easy to use, and clean. It also does a wonderful job covering the cakes that i have covered with it. I'll post them in my gallery (Elmo and the Roller Skate ). Maybe once i'm more experienced I'll look into upgrading.
