I use this for my fluid art work to spray my paints around as well as to use water paints to spray on my art. This is a heavy duty and handy airbrush gun! It has a little weight to it which means to me that it is built solid. The machine is very easy to handle and perfect for any hand size. The nozzles turn easy and are simple to use. I had no problem learning how to use this airbrush gun after watching Youtube tutorials. For the price this is an amazing deal and well worth it. I have not tried cake decorating with this but I can see it will do the job and more! I can not wait to try!
