I am new to airbrushing...well, my DH is, anyway. He is the one who is into it icon_smile.gif

Anyway...we just made a Pepsi can cake for a friend, and while the color turned out great our hands are very stained and I am sick to my stomach thinking of how blue their faces and teeth are going to be! My hands are still stained after my shower, and all I did was transfer the cake to the cakeboard!

I did warn her about the staining, and the cake was four layers with three inner layers of buttercream, so they *can* scrape off the outside.

How do I avoid this in the future? I asked my DH how much he applied, but he said he *did* use a light hand.

theres no way to avoid that if your looking to make dark colours with the AB. you could wear gloves to protect your hands as it does get messy. even if you used coloured fondant or buttercream alot of food colouring is going to be used either way.
