Hi all,
I just got an Aztek gun and now what?? I have a huge compressor that I"ll hook it up to when hubby gets home and see if I can get air.. but how do I use this sucker? I'll order airbrush colors today, but I have no idea how to put it all together and make a pretty cake! LOL

I'd love advice .. esp if people like the Aztek gun.. if not, I can return it before I use it..

My DH won't let me buy an airbrush until I take a class. Let me correct that, he won't let me buy a GOOD airbrush until then. Do you need to buy airbrush colors or can you just dilute food coloring gel? I tried airbrushing once with a model airbrusher and diluted food coloring and it didn't work. Of course it just occured to me now that I would need to buy the special colors and maybe I could get away with a $64 airbrusher.
