Hi everyone

 I have a Duff cake decorating airbrush machine. I typically use Americolor airbrush colors with lemon extract when airbrushing. I just always seem to have trouble getting the ratio of drops of extract to drops of color right. I also find the gold americolor really doesn’t go a long way...I feel like I’m constantly refilling when using this color!


can anyone please guide me as to what is an appropriate ratio to use? Do the shimmer colors, like gold, usually require more frequent refilling?


thanks!

I just use the airbrush color by itself with no extracts.
