I got both with my compressor and they are more than worth it to me.

I got mine from there too. I actually got the GD100 (which is the same as the GD102 except it has a smaller color cup). I really like mine and the price, including the compressor was hard to beat.

If you don't mind me asking, which compressor did you get? How do you like all your stuff from them?

I got mine in the cake decorating kit which had the GD100 airbrush and the 144AC air compressor. I really like the air compressor because it's very quiet. I would say it's no louder than running my dishwasher in the background and it has plenty of power/pressure for cakes. I'm still getting use to the airbrush itself, but that's because I had never done ANY airbrushing before I got this kit. My husband thought my first attempts were pretty good though so the airbrush must be good if it can make an amateur look like she knows what she's doing. I got my colors from Kopycake. I got my cleaning solution from there too so that I knew it would be safe when working with foods. HTH

Something I keep wondering about...do you have to buy a specific type of airbrush that is made for food coloring? Or can you buy a regular one and dedicate it for food use only?

as far as I have always been told it doesn't matter which one you use as far as it being for food as long as it has always been so!

Go to ebay and get one of their package deals and it is cheaper too. At least that's what I did.

I first flush it with water, spraying it through the nozzle, etc until it's clear. Then I use a little of the airbrush cleaner I got from kopycake to finish it off.

You can use any airbrush as long as it's only been used with food safe colors. The only other thing to consider is if it has the features you want for doing food airbrushing (size range of spray pattern, etc.). And you probably already know this, you just have to make sure whatever food-safe coloring you're using is thinned enough to not clog the airbrush. Of course, if you buy food color specifically made for airbrushes, that's usually already taken care of for you. HTH

That's an awesome deal on those airbrushes! I got a Powercat airbrush that's built just like the one in the link you provided for $30 on ebay. I bought a Kopykake air compressor seperately. I absolutely love mine! I used it to luster dust the wedding cake my best friend and I just completed and it worked perfectly!

Hi all on the airbrushing subject can i ask a question also... i havent yet used an airbrush and have bought one and the colours ready to go...

Where do you do your airbrushing? how do you stop it from spreading around the house etc...? and finally how do you do about changing the colours to suit what youare doing ie a dark green into a light or from the purple that is in the set how do i make it deeper that sort of thing..

thanks so much for any help...

happy decorating

I haven't had a problem with mine going everywhere in the house. I got a book about airbrushing from Winbeckler, but it's not really a lesson manual like a thought it would be. Anyway, I'm just really practicing right now and use paper towels on top of old newspapers. As far as changing colors to lighter, etc. they do make a white airbrush color that I believe you can mix with other colors, but you have to be careful with it because it has a tendency to clog the airbrush if you don't clean it out well after using it.

I don't have one yet, I've been looking in to it, though.
I thought that when I get it I could set up a card table and use one of those tri-fold boards (Like they use for science projects) that way there's like a 3 sided wall all around the spot where I'm spraying.
Does anyone else do it like that, or is that overkill?

i just bought a lady out of her cake decorating supplies/business, and when i was picking everything up, including her airbrush, she recommended to me to buy a large clear rubbermaid storage container with lid. buy a vent fan (like for a bathroom) and cut a hole the same size in the back of the storage container, then install the fan and caulk well around the sides to make it airtight. then cut two holes in the front for your arms to go through. you can place your cake inside, put the lid on , and just reach through to spray your cakes. the fan will suck the additional spray into the filter. voila!
