I would like to do a tie-dye wedding cake, but how do you do the swirls on such with your airbrush? Is there a template you can get? Hoe do you do it without all the colors running together? Anyone ever try this?

I've been wondering the same thing. In my opinion, the colors won't run into each other unless you put in too much paint. I just realized I made a couple of cakes featuring spiderman and air brushed the spider web, maybe you can create the effect of tie-dye the same way. Let's see: I imagine the tie dye leaves a figure close to the shape of the spider web in the whole cake photo, what would happend if you try to repeat the same shape in the inside, leaving a little of the background to show and bringing the points to the first color? I try to reproduce the effect in the little photo, but this was done with a software i'm not very familiar with so it may not look to good. Hope this inspires and helps you to create a very nice tie-dye.
