Using the Mouth Atomizer

The mouth atomizer, which can be thought of as a poor man's airbrush, is an inexpensive device (under $5 US) that can be used to spread kiln wash or other liquids evenly over a surface.   

As the illustration to the left indicates, a mouth atomizer consists of two hinged tubes, one of which is placed into the liquid to be sprayed and the other of which is blown into by mouth.  (The atomizer shown here has a black plastic mouthpiece; some models are bare metal on both ends.)

Learning to use the atomizer is a matter of practice and of blowing hard enough to create a venturi effect between the tubes.  This sucks the liquid up the long tube and then propels it forward so that it sprays the desired surface.
