I need to apply Confectioner's glaze to a large quantity of hard crack, boiled sugar castings, and was wondering if there is an efficient means to do so. Using a brush is very slow, dipping into a container of glaze seems like it might waste product. I was wondering if anyone has airbrushed or sprayed Confectioner's glaze?

Alternatively, you can buy food grade shellac in an aerosol can, but that will cost a good deal. ChefRubber.com has the best price I could find.
It looks like dipping the product is the only efficient solution in this case. I've looked at aerosol cans of glaze; and you're right, they are too expensive for the volume that I have to use. The confectioner's glaze on ChefRubber is about $45.00 for 15 oz; do you know where I can buy quarts or litres of glaze for the best price.....George
To do volume the best solution, rather than brushing, is the use of a professional electric spray gun. The KREBS LM45 does what brushing (and paint guns) can't! The high performance LM45 is able to apply even the most viscous materials- a perfect chocolate spray gun, or for jams, sauces and thick materials. - and no need for compressed air. This model should also be selected if spraying large volumes of material when the vacuum power of the LM45 can provide a direct feed from a larger floor based container by using the extension tube.
In addition to spraying thick materials, this "food safe" certified handheld gun also provides fast and accurate greasing of baking sheets & tins or can be used for any number of materials and applications. It is fast, economical, accurate and food industry approved; the alternative to the brush or non food regulation compliant paint gun. This model is used throughout the food industry- Bakeries, Cake shops, Butchers, Hotels, Hospitals, Canteens, Restaurants, Food Factories and Fast Food outlets.
