I would like to begin airbrushing my cakes. I have purchased some paint but don't know what kind of airbrush to get!

I'm sure someone here could help me!

I have an aztek model 470 and love it. You have to be carful of the compressor you get though. It should have a max of 30 PSI or it will blow the frosting off your cake.

Kopy Kake airbrushes work great, but make sure you get the airmaster compresor, it's very good!

if your looking at just the airbrush gun, get one with the cup on top, needs less pressure to spray. holds enough colour from a few drops to 1/2 tsp. more then you need. and its easy to refill. you can get either a single action (pull back on trigger and colour will flow) or a double action airbrush, (push trigger down to control air flow, pull back to control colour spray) the single action will be fine. then when you look for a compressor it needs to be able to work at low psi, 10 - 15.

I have a CO2 Tank a large one with a gage on it. I fill it once a year for 15 dollars and I think putting it together cost me around 75 dollars. If you have a welding friend, they would be able to hook you up for less! I love it, there is no noise and it is a constant spray as opposed to the compressor I find that it gives me splotches. That is my opinion anyway. HTH icon_biggrin.gif
