Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

So I'm looking into getting an airbrush gun for my small lil home bakery and am not sure what kind to get. I'm tired of having to put so much food coloring in my fondant to get the color I want and then the fondant ripping and becoming dry. Any advice on what type of air gun is best and where to find the best prices? Thanks everyone.

I have an Airmaster Airbrush Compressor System and Kopykake airbrush (dual action)...I heard of another airbrush brands...paasche or iwata which are good brands as well. I also got mine at amazon.com which came with starter kit airbrush sheen colors but they are very tiny (size of the bottles similar to the Duff food colors available at Michaels) and I also bought more americolor airbrush colors.

Really? I haven't seen any at Michaels. Whats the brand? I'll reach this. lol

mine is a badger basic spray gun.  it was located in the painting dept at michaels.  is came with a propell can so you can start right away.  i use ameria spray colors

do you have a harbor freight near you.  they have lots of guns to choose from  just saw they have a gun and compressor for $79 this month.

I didn't know I could use a sprayer that is meant for paint. I will check it out next time I'm there. Thanks for the tid bit!

 

yep as long as it is new and no paint has touch it.  it works fine.  i was like that too.  when i was told that little tib bit  i said well you know that does make sense. hahaha  hope it works for you.
I am so happy with mine, haven't had any problems with it at all.

I bought mine at Michaels, they almost always have 40% off coupons online so it's not too expensive.
