Airbrush inquiry---What is your fav?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

HEY!  I am getting a new airbrush for Mother's Day only problem is I don't know which one to get!   I have used the Bakery Craft one in the past but wanted input on what other airbrushes are awesome and which ones are duds!  I see the Masters one all over Amazon--anyone use it before?

I have Duff's. If you have a Michael's or AC Moore near you, they pretty much always have a 40-50% off coupon which makes it pretty affordable. I love mine.

Never heard of taht brand before--will have to look it up! Thanks!  Has anyone tried one they DID NOT like?

Absolutely!  My first airbrush was a Tester Aztek and it was horrible!  I have had a Badger airbrush that I really like, and I just got a Grex a couple of weeks ago.  Grex's are expensive, but they are supposed to be REALLY nice!  I loved them when I tried it out a couple of years ago at ICES.

Well after all research I decided to go with a Masters Airbrush Gun.  It was the best deal for my first gun.  Figure I can upgrade later....  Thanks for all the info and help!  =-)

Let us know how you like it! I thought about getting one but couldn't really find reviews

Amazon.com had a bunch of reviews for it and the few that were negative were people who had never used an airbrush gun before and couldn't assemble it or figure out how to use it..  Apparently the instructions are very vague!

I have used nothing but masters. I should add i only use dual action guns. I airbrush motorcycle tanks and fenders, helmets, small detail stuff on cars, etc. and when i started doing cakes, i ordered me the exact same setup, Tc-20t compressor and master airbrushes. I have 4 different guns for my cakes. I use the master g233 the most. Been using the same airbrushes for over 10 years.

I have a Master airbrush and compressor as well.  As someone who has never used an airbrush before getting this and had no clue what to do (and Master doesn't give you instructions... grr) I found it VERY easy to use and clean.  I can't say if its better or worse than any other airbrush but I've been able to do everything I want to do with it.

For those of you that said you had the Master's Airbrush--Gotta question...It came with some Americolor Amerimist Air Brush Colors.  Do these need to be watered down to use or can I use them straight out of the bottle?  I am used to using Bakercraft Airbrush colors and those are pretty watery....Any help would be appreciated!!!  =-)

If they're airbrush colors they don't need to be watered down
