Which airbrush system is right for you?

So you’ve had your eye on an airbrush system for a while now, and you’re finally ready to pull the trigger (pun absolutely intended).  But now you have two fantastic Cookie Countess airbrush systems to choose from, and you have to decide which one is right for you—let’s look at some of the features and benefits of each one in order to help make that decision.


The original Cookie Countess airbrush system is small and compact, weighing just under one pound and producing up to 25psi.  It comes with one .4mm nozzle airbrush gun, one integrated gun holder, a push-button on/off switch, and an adjustable pressure knob.  It is a perfect step into airbrushing, as it is easy to assemble, easy to store, and very user-friendly.


The new Royale Max system is great for newbies and experienced airbrushers alike.  Larger than the original system (it weighs approximately 3lbs and does have a larger footprint), it is adjustable up to 45psi—the higher pressure means that it can produce a finer mist of color when spraying.  It is also black, which is perfect for hiding unsightly airbrush color stains.  This compressor comes with one .4mm nozzle airbrush gun, two integrated gun holders, an airbrush gun cleaning kit, a lighted push-button on/off switch, and an adjustable pressure knob.  This system also comes equipped with a quick-connect gun adaptor; a slight pull on the adaptor allows you to swap guns easily, without the tugging on the air hose that you would otherwise have to do to make the switch. Watch our full quick connect explanation video below or by clicking here.




Both of these systems can be used to airbrush cookies, cakes, macarons, and more.  Additional guns and accessories are all available for purchase in our Airbrush Shop.

Hi! wondering if that quick connector is sold seperately as well and if it can be used with the original, smaller CC Airbrush machine?
thanks :)
The Cookie Countess replied:
Yes, the quick connect adaptor can be found in the dropdown menu listings for our replacement airbrush guns, and you can absolutely update your old guns to use them with the original compressor. You will need to purchase one adaptor per gun. I hope this helps!

Hi! Yes, it is sold as a separate product and it works with both the Airbrush Royale (white) and Airbrush Max (black) systems.
