Air Brushing

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all!! I purchased an Air Brush compressor and two "guns"...no instructions what so ever. Is there a thread on here for idiots with no clue?? I literally don't know a thing...I have 24 tubes of .65 ounce Amerimist Color...do I drop it in from the container or do I need to dilute it??

No, you don't have to dilute it. Just drop in a few drops to start.
Try it on a paper towel first. In between colors, clean out your airbrush gun by using a glass of very hot water, just press the trigger with it in the water and it will clear it out, then spray onto a paper towel to remove the excess.

You can practice on a coloring book page if you are using a stencil for your picture. If you just want to free hand colors onto the cake, just practice on a paper towel till you get the hang of it. It's not very hard at all.
First outline holding it close to the picture, then fill it in. Be careful not to use too much pressure when outlining.

You should be able to google "airbrushing a cake" and find a tutorial or go to youtube and look for one.

I hope this helps, I'm not very good at explaining things. Good Luck.

hook the hose with the piece that has the little screw into the compressor (the little screw adjusts your air pressure. then screw the other end of the hose into the gun. You add a few drops to cover a small surface, and if your covering a whole cake surface fill the bottom of the bowl. I keep warm water in a squeeze bottle to clean out the bowl when Im done then I put more water in and blow it out with the gun to clear the nozzle.
