i use mister bottle and it works great, except the cakes dry fairly quickly. A face painter friend did steer me straight.. i had been using a spary bottle and adding WAY too much water. for the black and white i do like to add abit of water to create a "well" since i use those colors on every face.

I just cleaned and spoon pressed and refilled all my cakes to get rid of the well so it looks neater.

I may go back to having a welled white and black cake though - it is faster to have the water in the moist middle to keep going and not seek out your water source..... I was thinking of clean-looking aesthetics -- a cake with a big crater in the middle looks used and abused and the water can take a long time to evaporate. I don't want a parent thinking I have "old" or cracked unsanitary paint that needs to be replaced.

Shannon, How do you keep from running out of brushes and sponges if you use a new set for each face? Or did I read the post wrong?

I use a spray bottle to mist my cakes when I first setup - it creates the gooey paint mentioned above. Depending on the weather - I usually mist the cake again if I'm using a sponge for base coverage - I also wet my sponges when I first set up - so by the time I'm ready to use them they are damp but not wet.

When using a paint brush - I dip the tip of the brush in my water. I've found the greatest water basin. It's like one of those Automatic Dog Water Bowls - the water enters the basin whenever it gets low. Once the water has been used I can push the button and it flushes it away into an under basin. I always have clean water. It's called New Brush Rinse Well by Masterson Art http://www.misterart.com/g6629/Masterson-Rinse-Well.htm

I found it at www.sillyfarm.com under the tools / cleaning selection.

Oh and Angie - you are right about the white Snaz for bases - I love it - but only as a base. ~ Deanna

The brushes are washed and sanitized and air-dry completely before reusing. I have lots of sponges - typically a 3-4 hour gig will only use about one bucket full (60-ish) as not all desgns use sponges and I carry about 150 or so in my kit, and if I am doing a 9 hour gig I bring more.

Water used is CLEAN and dispensed from a small squeeze bottle directly onto the paints (and I don't think having a "hole" in the middle is a problem but I will smooth out the cakes after a gig...)
