A moisture trap is also a good idea.

it looks just like geraldine's airbrush without the water trap.

I got an airbrush for christmas and my husband got it from Americolor.
www.tcpglobal.com has some good deals and it works really good for me. Now I only do cakes for family and friends so the small one is wonderful. Now my husband does want to break out his air compressor because its bigger but bigger is not always better....

Okay, so I got the Duff airbrush. I've never used an airbrush before, so I'm not really sure what to expect. First, there's a real small cup, and it I had to fill it up three or four times to do some pretty small pieces. The airflow was really strong, even at the lowest setting, and with me barely pressing the button. There is NO WAY to make a thin line with this airbrush.. and I found it really difficult to control the flow. Like I said, I have never used an airbrush, so it could be just me learning to get used to it.. but for me, I guess its a good "starter" airbrush..

That's crazy, they always accept competitor's coupons!

i just bought Duff's airbrush machine yesterday and I love it!!! so far it works great...and if you buy it with a micheals coupon its a great bargain because it comes with everything you need to start (minus the colors of course)

Not anymore 'cause his resident cake diva just took it over! then you might want (if you are like me and do not care for LOUD noise while your working, an air tank which can be purchased different places different sizes, and lastly the regulator and the airbrush. Now if you do not have a "tim the tool man" at your house then ok get the coupon and go to micheals. But I know a lot of you all have hubbies at home and there may already be an air compressor there you never thought of pairing with a regulator and airbrush.



Wow, you use your DHs air compressor? I'd never have thought of that. My DH has two compressors in his shop and both of them are huge! One is so big and heavy it can only be moved by two men, and the other smaller one, my DH can barely pick up and move about by himself. The noise both of them make when he starts them up is unbelievably loud like you say. I don't know much about the pressure his compressors put out, but do know he can nail molding or flooring down in no time. Katiebelle, I'm curious now. How do you control the pressure on your DHs air compressor to keep it at a manageable level for cakes?

I was watching an airbrush demo at a cake show and to get a thin line you had to get really close to whatever you were painting. So you may want to play with the distance a bit. I don't have an airbrush but with a coupon I might consider iticon_smile.gif

Thanks for your review.

FYI Michael's only matches coupons up to 50%. So they won't take a competitor coupon for 60% but they should apply the 50%
post #28 of 53
I've been to my Michaels 3x now looking for that thing. icon_sad.gif They don't have it out and I can't see where they might be putting it. icon_sad.gif I hope they are going to carry it. I'm going to call them today and find out. icon_smile.gif

@sccandwbfan they don't put them out at our store due to shoplifting. They have them in the back so maybe ask if they have them in yet. But they are new so maybe they didn't get theirs yet or already sold out.
