.......naked cakes that is. That's my name for cakes that are awaiting airbrushing.If you know my work, you know that I airbrush everything, EVERYTHING.
I've been interested in airbrushing since the 80's. Many of you also know that I have had absolutely no formal cake training, but you may not know that I have also never had any airbrush classes, but I came close. In 1986, I think it was, I actually enrolled in an airbrush course but surprisingly it was closed due to low enrollment. I don't know why, maybe everybody who might have been interested was already set up on their street corners with their t-shirt airbrushing booths. Don't knock it, when this cake thing dies out I might be hanging my custom t shirt shingle out too, anyone up for a Lady Gaga portrait t ?
Anyway, while I am still making cakes, I thought it might be fun to have a look at some "naked" cakes and the finished product. in my opinion, there is no technique that has the ability to add more "life" to your work. Oh and technical queries?? I use Iwata airbrushes exclusively (hear that plug Iwata???) specifically, the Iwata Hp-B plus double action airbrush.
Oh yeah and I have so unartfully edited out my junk in the backgrounds because I'd rather you see me actually airbrushing naked than have you see my kitchen mess.
