What colors are you airbrusing with?
Is the color made for airbrush, or DIY?
Also, airbrush in light layers. This gives the color a chance to dry. 3 light layers is better than 1 heavy layer...
What kinds of colors are you airbushing with? For example, pearls/metallics will not be as opaque as solid colors and need to be layered for maximum payoff.
Airbrushing on modeling chocolate does require light layers.
You're applying a water-based color onto a fat-based product. Color beading up and even dripping will happen unless you sloooow down. Even more than when working on fondant.
The brand of color also makes a difference.
In my experience, it is always easier to airbrush on modeling chocolate or chocolate with lusters/pearls than with plain colors.
