Good kit for starters. Sep 27, 2009
By Jose Koenig
I have to say that for the price is an excellent starter's kit; however if someone needs to get serious about painting with airbrush systems in a frequent basis then this system will not make the cut. Here are the reasons: a)the compressor tends to overheat after extended periods of use b)the airbrush is good for detailed paintings that require low air pressure, but is not adequate for spraying larger areas quickly. The airbrush did not come with cleaning instructions so whomever wants to buy this kit I recommend to do some research on how to clean and maintain this product. Our airbrush got clogged after six months and we had no idea how to take it apart or clean it so we ended up buying another airbrush with better maintenance instructions.

Works good after having to fix it myself.... Jul 15, 2010
By Chris M. Sigmon
When I received the airbrush set I was estatic. I got it out and followed the little directions that I had recieved with the airbrush and it wasn't working.... So I had to get my dad, who is familar with airbrushes because he paints cars for a living, to come and set it up. Well we achieved to get air flowing out of the compressor and then the Master airbrush itself was not working correctly... So we had to pull the airbrush apart and put it back together to get the trigger to work correctly. It seems as though the piece that secures the trigger was loose so it was flopping back and forth. Finally when we got everything together it worked perfectly I have no complaints about its performance but the setup was ridiculous... It was shipped in a timely manner so I have no complaints about that either. Just expect to be calling support when you recieve you set. All in all it was a great price for what you get, I bought this set with the pearl food coloring as well. I am mainly going to be using this set for decorating cakes. I also wanted to note that it states in the directions not to use the compressor for more than 10 minutes at a time and to take a 15 minute break before using again. I Think this set would be perfect for personal and commerical use.
I've had this airbrush set for around 3-4 months now, and it is still chugging along! I did have a mishaps with it (My fault), the needle became logged in the tip somehow. Which I'm guessing is a result of my two little brothers messing... Anyways, I started tapping the needle on a table to try and jiggle it loose, so I could get the tip out. This was definitely a no no, the top of the needle bent, rendering the needle useless. Lucky enough, it is super easy to fix and get replacement tips for this airbrush. This same company, TCP Global, sells the needle kits. .2 Needle, Nozzle, Cap Kit G22,G23,G24,G25,G26,G34,G39 This is the link to the needle kit that I purchased, and It works well with this airbrush (G22 Model). I'm changing my rating to 5 stars because I feel that this has been a very reliable product, despite the first hiccups I had with it. I use it all the time, and it has held up very well. I can also state that this compressor has a considerable amount of power to it, I have air flow set very low on it. (I can't speak for other airbrush machines) But I feel that if you are not needing a heavy duty compressor like this one, you could get away with a cheaper set. I personally have fallen in love with this machine, it makes my cake decorating life easier. If I am using fondant on a cake and the color is super hard to get, I airbrush that junk! It is so convenient to just airbrush a deep purple, blue, or even red on the cake instead of.... Kneading, kneading, and more kneading. I also have to note that I still have all the airbrush colors close to full, those that came with this kit. I've used them so much but there is still a ton there. The only thing that doesn't last as long is the white pearl. I bought the pearl "set" which come in a couple of different colors in littler tubes and it was gone in no time. Instead of buying the pearl set I would buy a large bottle of regular, and metallic pearl. This should cover all your pearling needs! I haven't really used any of the colored pearl tubes, and the tint of the colored pearls doesn't add much to the cake.

CAKE DECORATING AIRBRUSH KIT with 12 Food Colors and Air Compressor
Being a Cake Decorator...I really love the control on this airbrush...the fact that you can set your PSI to the pressure that will not blow a whole in your icing is GREAT! I really do like the fact that it is small and compact...I have not been disappointed with mine. I have had it over 6 months now.

Frustrating and usefull Feb 07, 2012
By Charles E. Sutherland
First prepare yourself, the reviews are correct there are no instructions and sending emails to the manufacturer in England is null. Go through the equipment slowly on one of the parts sheets you will have the name of the shipping company Global something or other, sorry for the dissatisfaction with them as their help is about whether you are bothering them or not and if they are getting off work early or not. Anyway I digress in anger and frustration and I want to help.
First place everything in front of you, the large object with the gage on it will screw on to the compressor, now there is no red insert to protect the threads and if you are in a hurry you may overlook it, so take a deep breath exhale slowly and slowly rotate until you see the whole, that done now carefully tighten, DO NOT over tighten, it should be perpendicular with the air release on the bottom. if not a 33 degree angle is permisable Now carefully take the gage off again open the plastic bag and remove the white tape, apply as necessary to the threads, after 4-5 turns tear the tape and replace the gage.
Now looking at the gage you will see a RED ring, loosen this ring, gently but firmly push down or pull up so the knob turns, now plug the compressor in attach our 6 ft hose, add the appropriate hnd gun, turn on the compressor and adjust the pressure you desire. once done screw the lock ring down. there you go you are ready to play with your new toy.
Sure hope this helps, because both the manufacture and the shipping company are only interested in one thing the MONEY. ANY American manufactures there I know we can do better.
