Hi Everyone...

I need some airbrush help!!! I just got my kit today... it came with 12 - .7 oz bottles of color. Do these little bottles cover much? I've never used an airbrush before so I don't know if the coloring goes a long way or if it's something that I need to make sure I have plenty on hand of if I'm going to do it? I hope that makes sense. Thanks!

It all depends on how much you will be using the airbrush.I use mine for nearly every cake so I can tell you that those bottles wouldn't be enough for me.I buy the 4.5 oz ones.I go through some colors more than others like Soft pink and black.Make sure you try it out first to get the hang of it!!

Thanks everyone for the help!! I am making a firefighter hat cake for this weekend... and since I've never used it I wasn't sure if the little bottle of black would be enough to cover it. They had a good special on their Super Deluxe Professional Kit... $144.00 - It included everything to get started, plus (12) bottles of color. I ordered it on Friday and got it yesterday!! Plus.. they have a 1 yr warranty on the compressor. I'll have to give it a try tonight!! Thanks again.

edited.... It blocked the company where I purchased it from again... It's not "that" company... if anyone is interested in it... shoot me a pm and I will get you the info.
