Can any one give me a good reccomendation for an airbrush? I think its time I get one. I dont want to spend a fortune but still was a decent one.

What do you guys think??

I just purchased one through Ebay and including shipping only paid 139. It comes with 2 different air brushes and 12 .4oz bottles of food coloring. It definately gets the job done. if you type in cake airbrush the items will pop up..THis is the one i have

I've been reading through all the airbrush posts on here and PMing some members. Based on reccomendations I just purchased the Paasche VL kit and I have my dh picking up the compressor from Harbor Freight ($69.99 online, but $49.99 in store until 11/9)

There is a 10 page thread on airbrushes recently that was a huge help in my research. I should have everything by Friday and am so excited that I will never have to knead dark colors into fondant again!!!!

I'm also buying an air brush this week. Michaels has one, made by Badger, that I think may work for cake deco (according to Badger's website). They sell it for $139.99, but I have a 40% off coupon, so I'm thinking I can get it for about $90. I know Badger is a good name, and I'd rather buy local. I'm going to get a look at it in person later, and I'm hoping to haul it home!

You can print out the 40% coupon from Michael's site. Just FYI.

I too am thrilled at the idea of NO MORE KNEADING DARK COLORS INTO FONDANT...YEAH!

I just have a basic KopyKake airbrush, but more important, I think, is the compressor. I have an airmaster ..... LOVE it!!!
