The mouth atomizer is a device that is used to spray watercolor paint, ink, or other liquids evenly over a surface.
A traditional, non-aerosol way to apply paint, the mouth atomizer functions like an airbrush powered by your breath. The atomizing technique creates an atmospheric effect that is difficult to achieve with a brush. It is also to add texture to foregrounds and buildings as well as create entire paintings in an impressionistic pointillism style.
Students will create a painting by masking and spraying colors onto watercolor paper. After an instructor discussion about value choices and color choices, students will embark on an artistic journey using a unique painting tool.
No watercolor experience necessary. Students are welcome to bring their own reference material or can copy the instructors painting.
Supplies to bring:
Creative Mark Mouth Atomizer
One 22x30 sheet of Arches Watercolor Paper, 140lb or 300lb, Cold press or rough surface. We will be working on a half sheet painting (15x22")

One bottle of Pebeo masking fluid. Do not buy the "permanent" version.
One 18”x24” piece of Gator Board
