Merry Christmas to all fellow CC members. DH surprised me with an airbrush for Christmas....something I've always wanted to get, but was putting it on hold for a number of reasons. Now that I have it, am wondering, what do I use for the "paint"? Do I just use the liquid food coloring and if so, do I need to thin it down with something? Sorry....I have very little knowledge in this area so would appreciate any direction from those of you more familiar with using an airbrush. Thanks in advance!

they have airbrush colors but you can thin the paste or gel colors with vodka. But here is a link for the colors

edited to add gel for clarification

Buy Americolor airbrush food coloring. You don't have to thin it down - straight from the bottle. So easy and so many colors.
