Not anymore 'cause his resident cake diva just took it over! then you might want (if you are like me and do not care for LOUD noise while your working, an air tank which can be purchased different places different sizes, and lastly the regulator and the airbrush. Now if you do not have a "tim the tool man" at your house then ok get the coupon and go to micheals. But I know a lot of you all have hubbies at home and there may already be an air compressor there you never thought of pairing with a regulator and airbrush.
Wow, you use your DHs air compressor? I'd never have thought of that. My DH has two compressors in his shop and both of them are huge! One is so big and heavy it can only be moved by two men, and the other smaller one, my DH can barely pick up and move about by himself. The noise both of them make when he starts them up is unbelievably loud like you say. I don't know much about the pressure his compressors put out, but do know he can nail molding or flooring down in no time. Katiebelle, I'm curious now. How do you control the pressure on your DHs air compressor to keep it at a manageable level for cakes?
