Before each use, shake vigorously until the particles are fully mixed. The sprayer can become clogged if particles get sucked up into the tube.
Spray in the direction of the arrow on the nozzle top. Be VERY careful to check this. I have been just a little off a couple of times and ended up spraying projects laying on my desk instead of the item in my Color Catcher.
For best results, spray six to ten inches from your project. I often spray from even a greater distance - twelve to fifteen inches. For a heavier application of color, spray closer to the project.
I find quick, but firm sprays result in a more "misty" application. If you use hesitant, or partial sprays, you will get a more splotchy appearance - which may be what you are looking for on some projects.
The Smooch Spritz bottles are made of glass. When using this product, place the bottles on a towel or cloth to prevent them from rolling and possibly breaking.
If the ink dries outside of the nozzle, remove the nozzle and submerge it in a household cleaner (such as Windex or 409) for 20 minutes. Rinse, replace the nozzle, shake well, and spray.
We have a great product that will help you use the Smooch Spray - the Color Catcher. Use the Color Catcher to catch color overspray from the Smooch Sprays (or Shimmer Spray made with our Shimmer Paints, etc.) that can splatter work areas. Just place your project inside the Color Catcher and spray--and don't worry anymore about cleanup. Plus it is easy to assemble and disassemble and it folds up compactly!
