Copic marker airbrush

I do my own labels and normally have too laydown a base of white for the label. I am using an airbrush, pain in the butt. It does a great job, easy to lay nice even coat. But, it takes a lot of time prepping the paint and constantly needing to clean it every time. I am looking at the Copic marker airbrush system. My concern is they don’t have an opaque white. They have “off” whites.
Has anybody have any experience with the Copic system?
Thanks, Doug

See you on the water, Doug
