I got a new airbrush and LOVE it. Only used it once to paint a black carved cowboy hat. The cake was cold and seemed to take forever for the color to dry. Do you let each layer of color dry or get the color you want - then dry. Also, does it make a difference when you airbrush on a cold cake compared to one at room temp? I don't have a cleaner I have heard some talk about. I just ran water thru the system. What am I supposed to use? THanks!

Personally I would airbrush on a room temp cake, but I live in a high humidity area. You can't even leave something out of the fridge for a minute with out condesation forming on everything.

I do light coats of coloring and by the time I get around the cake and do another coat it is usually dry.

I usually rinse mine with water, but you can use some alcohol like vodka or everclear.
