I don’t own an air brush so I couldn’t give you any information on that. As far as the cricut machine, I have one and used it only once. To be honest with you, I am not impressed with it. After one use, the cutting mat already has cuts on it. The actual cut was not very clean. I did find that after letting the fondant dry about 30 minutes it cut a little better but still not perfect. From what I have read in different forums, many people have the same issues with the cricut.
