Next, there are several tools that will help you when making projects with Pigment Sprinkles.

Aqua Painters and Watercolor Paper

Aqua Painters 103954 Price: $17.00 2 painters: 1 medium brush tip, 1 large brush tip

These are a perfect way to pick up the sprinkles when using an artist pallet to hold the sprinkles. Putting a little pigment into a container and then adding water allows you to color the image as if you are water coloring. You can also use the Aqua Painters to do a background wash.

Stampin' Spritzer

Stampin’ Spritzer 126185 Price: $3.00

The Stampin’ Spritzer allows you to spray the paper before adding pigment to activate the pigment upon contact. This allows for a swirly look and deeper color. Another way to use this tool for a different look is to sprinkle some pigment onto a piece of paper first and then spray. This will allow you to have more control over the pigment and get a lighter airy look.
