Yes you can but you have to get an adapter. I know Roland has those but I don't know where else to get them. A friend of mine had the kopykake system and upgraded to the aztek airbrush with the adapter.

I also have the Aztek and its fabulous. I don't love my airbrush city compressor, though. I broke my airbrush by soaking it, thinking I'd get it really good and clean. Then when it wouldn't work and I looked back at the instructions it has "DO NOT SOAK" all over the place! Whoops! I contacted the manufacturer, they told me to send it back to them for evaluation. They replaced it with a brand new one for free! Isn't THAT awesome?!

Thanks for the info on the cocoa/colors switch....VERY good to know. Now I want an airbrush even more!!!

In regards to the compressor, does this mean you can use any compressor with the Aztek? I found the Aztek for $109 at http://www.aswexpress.com/art-supply/catalogs/0049709000000

Don't know if that helps at all. Make sure to leave ME one though!!! icon_wink.gif

saberger, that looks like a great price. What do you think about the aztek blue mini compressor on the BearAir? Seems like a good price also. Anyone know about this one?

No, the shimmer colors are just airbrush colors with shimmer/dust added. Some airbrushes can also spray cocoa butter/fat based colors for use with chocolate....like the aztec airbrush. icon_smile.gif

You guys should try Harbor Freight! They have good deals and there guns work great. I dont personally have one but I know a few people that have bought from there and their cakes look great.

Hey everyone, I have been following all the posts since I have been looking for an airbrush as well. After hours of research I decided that the system Roland Winbeckler recommends (the one Tiggy2 has) is the way to go. Unfortunately it was out of my budget. Well, I did lots of searching and ended up getting the Aztek airbrush kit from ASW Express for $98.99 (it sells for $109.99 but you can get an additional 10% off if you enter HDCC in the coupon code). The link is:
http://www.aswexpress.com/art-supply/catalogs/0049709000000

I then bought the same air compressor at Harbor Frieight for $69.99. It is the same one that Winbeckler sells for $165 in his sight. The link for that is: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=92403

So I ended up getting the whole set up for $168.98 (not including shipping), as opposed to $344.95 on Winbeckler's site! I hope it works as good as everyone says it does. I can't wait to play!

Hope this helps some of you. Thanks for all the posts to help me on this decision.

Where do you get those cocoa colors? And how can you tell if your airbrush works with them? Mine is from Airbrush city, duel spray pen.

Shopchefrubber.com is where you can get the cocoa butter spray colors. They are $19.50 a can but will last you a while.

Call the company to ask if your airbrush is compatible for the cocoa butters first. A lot of them are not because they can not handle it and will get ruined.

I don't do that many cakes, so the price looked pretty good to me...

lovemyhusband. That's a great deal. I ordered mine for $250 with delivery and thought that was a good price. Dang it. Oh well, if I would have waited I wouldn't have bought it. The rational part of my brain would have taken over the compulsive part and reminded me about my house payment, health insurance payment and car insurance payment due 2 days after I bought it.
Congrats on the good deal.
