I'm searching for an airbrush now that I've had a chance to use the one from the shop. I'm totally addicted to the thing but I wanted more features than the simplistic one the bakery has. I thought I'd ask you guys because with the volume you do, you'd probably have a better idea of the features you love and hate.

The price on the gun below is roughly $130.

This kit is very popular with cake decorators, salons and temporary tattoo artists. Our customers rave about the quality of this airbrush kit, which includes fine (.2mm), medium (.3mm), and large (.5mm) needles and nozzles, our super quiet, compact and reliable AC-176 mini air compressor, a pistol grip mini air filter, quick disconnect and braided air hose!

This kit is a fantastic buy for professional studio use, yet easy to operate for beginners and hobby users alike.

Take a look at the detailed product descriptions below......
Air Pro Tools AC-176 Air Compressor
The Air Pro Tools AC-176 is a powerful, compact and reliable oil-less air compressor.

The AC-176 features a strong 1/6hp motor with automatic on/off switches for true air on demand spraying.
power   1/6HP 110V-120V/60HZ
Air Flow   20-23L/min
Pressure   Auto on 30psi, auto off 45psi
Noise   Super quiet 47db
Weight   6lbs
Model   AC-176
The internal .3L air tank helps regulate and smooth the air flow so that you never experience any air pulsation from the motor. All you get is smooth, clean air through the hose.

Because the compressor only runs when air in the tank drops below 30psi, you will extend the life of your compressor and cut down on unnecessary wear and tear on the motor.

The adjustable air control knob and pressure regulator let you choose how much air pressure you need for the job. And the pistol grip mini filter cleans and dries the air before it has a chance to reach your airbrush.

The AC-176 is thermally protected from overheating. The compressor will automatically shut itself off if it gets to hot, saving the motor from possible damage.

The AC-176 also features a built in airbrush holder to help keep your work area neat and organized.

There's a reason why this air compressor is a customer favorite. It doesn't just look good, it outperforms the competition by a mile! You simply cannot go wrong when choosing the AC-176 as your air compressor.

I am new in the cake decoration area, but I am a graphic designer and in college I owned a air brush-the brand was badger, single action, it was ok, but I always liked to use my best friends air brush, because it was a double action, I could control more the flow of the paint. We used it for 5 years.

Now that I am in the cake business, I am thrilled to be using the airbrush again, 10 years later, my friend still had hers and gave it to me since she doesn't use it anymore. I love it, it does everything I want. I only bought a new house and a new needle, and of course food coloring and new bottles and a cup. I love it!
Some of my classmates had Paasche airbrush, they didn't like them.
If its a hobby I guess it won't matter that much, but if you are planning on keeping it, I would invest in a Badger, highly recommend it!
