      Hello all,

      Another way to keep from splatters is to use eye
      droppers instead of whisks (pigment flickers). Baby
      food jars of paint can be placed in a rubbermaid shoe
      box. Edmund Scietific, 800-728-6999, has droppers at
      a good price. Dropper bottles work well for
      watercolor paint if you put a fishing weight or
      something similar in the bottle to help mix the
      pigment that settles in the bottom. I don't like them
      for acrylics since the plastic is so hard to clean.

      Of course if you are wanting to do small-medium stone
      patterns you are back to the whisk or atomizer.
      Painters fabric drop clothes are washable and aren't
      slippery like plastic. If the space allows sew or pin
      a sleeve at one end of the drop cloth and pass a
      tension rod through it to anchor it in place. It
      saves prep time.

      Best, Laura
