Help with a Badger 250 Airbrush

Recommended Posts

My regular airbrush broke, so I took out a spare Badger 250 to spray some colored cocoa butter but I could not get it to spray anything.  I tried adjusting the tip up and down, adjusting the air pressure, checking that the siphon tubes weren't clogged....but I couldn't get it to spray any cocoa butter.  Anyone here use this brush?  Care to share any secrets to getting it to work?

I suspect the distinct lack of responses reflects the similarity of your experience with the Badger and most of ours! There’s a reason we all use other brushes now.

 

Kate Weiser used badgers successfully longer than anyone I know. I think Norman Love did initially too.

 

I’m sure I still have one around but never use it due to the same issues you have identified.

Haha. I have used egullet for so much info...and  i already have a badger 250 that i used once. I know gravity feed is preferred now - what air brushes are folks using? Price range? Do i need to spend 350 on one?

Few topics around on airbrushes/guns - Spraying Chocolate Equipment Materials and Techniques is the main one I believe.
