Using the Mouth Atomizer
This is part three of
a multi-part series on using the mouth atomizer. Click

Aside from the effort of blowing hard enough in the mouth
atomizer to force a spray to emerge, the risk of accidentally
breathing in what you are spraying makes the mouth atomizer a
less than 100% healthy and safe alternative.
Instead of blowing with your mouth, try hooking up a
compressor or a can of aerosol propellant to provide the
necessary force. Simply attach a tube from the end of the
atomizer (where your mouth would blow) to the source of
compressed air and let the air do all the work.
Alternatively, and even better, consider using a spray
bottle (no compressor needed!) or an inexpensive external mix
airbrush; both are easier to use than a mouth atomizer. As
a bonus, they're also more likely to produce an even stream of
droplets than the mouth atomizer.
