I'm not sure what you mean by food safe dye - I assume you mean food coloring. I have a badger 360 which is not made for cake decorating. It works great. I use wilton food gels thinned with vodka to spray. They sell airbrush coloring, which is good to use, too. I just have to go to a cake store and it is 40 minutes away. Plus they are a little expensive. I buy one each time I go. The wilton/vodka method works for me. HTH.
I have a seperate compressor that I use for my pnuematic nail gun (bit of a tool belt diva, I love construction, I built my sons room when I was 7 months pregnant with him). Can I use that? How low does the pressure need to be?
someone recommended this one in a former post. She said when she was in a class where they needed air brushes all the others had problems with there air brush except her. It seems like it comes with a lot too and it has a reasonable price. http://www.bearair.com/prodinfo.asp?number=100259
mellormom, that's the airbrush I have and I wouldn't trade it for any other. I've seen the kopykake one's work and the finished product isn't as nice as it is with the aztek 470. There's no needle to clean or bend with this one and I have several extra cups so changing colors is a breeze.

melloermom - I was looking at that one! My problem was trying to figure out the compressor to get for it. Is it better to have the ones that you pour the color into the cup or the ones which have the containers that you attach from the bottom? Sorry, I don't know the terms.
