The mouth atomizer is good for all that.
It’s the perfect tool for artists who don’t own, or don’t want to deal with, an airbrush.
I get questions about it all the time. Currently I’m rebuilding my digital file system and things are starting to pop up that I haven’t seen for years.
Yesterday I found this video of my mouth atomizer demo. I’ve put it up as a public video on YouTube here. It’s actually easier and less messy to use than a toothbrush!
The video is self-explanatory. I show you my mouth atomizer and explain how I use it, what I use it with, and how to create masks that can enhance your use of the tool.
I hope you’ll go and check it out and subscribe to my YouTube Channel, because I’ve been unearthing more videos that will be posted now and then. I think you’ll enjoy them if you’re interested in the topics I typically discuss on my blog.
Originally the video was created for my online Textures class. I closed my online classroom a couple years ago when my permanent double vision made it impossible for me to spend the hours necessary to edit my online video lessons. Instead I currently focus on my Patreon/RozInterim site. (I encourage you to check it out and subscribe. You can see demos and creativity posts there going back to 2019.)
The mouth atomizer you see me use in my video is rigid and doesn’t fold down. At around US$50 it may be more than you want to pay to try something out.
BUT there is a foldable mouth atomizer available from a bunch of sources if you do a Google search. At less than US$10 it’s something you can work into your art budget. (I have a foldable one as well and use it all the time. It isn’t in my video because studio elves hid it on taping day. I like to give you options and I discussed the foldable mouth atomizer in my class when it resurfaced!)
Again, don’t miss watching my demonstration on how to use the Mouth Atomizer here.
