Thank you for your enquiry
The Koh-I-Noor Plastic Diffuser is a tool for atomising liquid or fine powders. The key to using a mouth atomizer is to have the medium at a very thin consistency in order to apply a fine spray.
It can be used to apply all kinds of liquid paints, inks and fixatives on a range of surfaces. as long as they are thin/fluid enough.
Put the end of the diffuser into the liquid and ensure that the mouthpiece is at a 90% angle, short, hard gusts are most effective. Blowing forces up the liquid up and out giving you a spray effect.
You need to be several inches from the surface and keep the atomiser moving rather that keeping it in one place to get an even coverage.
As with any technique it is important to practice and learn how to use the tool.
