Using the Mouth Atomizer

This is part three of a multi-part series on using the mouth atomizer.  Click here to go to part one.

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.
