Well we have listened!
We have just got into stock a fabulous little kit which is perfect for all your cakey needs. (It will of course do other projects too from make-up to art work – just make sure you thoroughly clean it if using non edible colours!) It is the Art of Cake airbrush and mini compressor kit.
The kit contains a really nice all metal single-action airbrush with 1.5m of air hose and a brilliant mini compressor – very portable but at a variable output between 0 and 15 PSI powerful enough to allow you to use for everything from very fine detail to larger areas of decoration. The power cable provided includes a UK plug however the compressor will work worldwide by using a universal power adaptor.
I could absolutely not live without my airbrush for colouring sugar flowers and leaves – so quick and gives fantastic shading – and I love it for shading on cake sides. The most use I get is for very simple spray for under models on cakes which I use all the time, and with this light and portable airbrush kit I can see this getting easier and easier!
We also have a range of Airflair colours. At the moment we have the primary set in stock but will be getting other colours soon. The primary shades allow you to make all sorts of fabulous colours by either mixing in the 2ml gravity feed pot on the airbrush (you won’t need to fill this! – only a few drops can be used as it goes a very long way!) or by overspraying directly onto the cake or sugar item (a bit of practice is recommended before this however!).
Hopefully we will get a bit of a tutorial course up on site in the next few weeks to help you get the most out of your new airbrush kit so keep a look-out for this on partyanimalonline.co.uk and on this blog.
