I was heavy with the misting for this test because that is what I was trying to determine. Everyone recommends using 70% rubbing alcohol with it, I only had 90% so that is what I used, it clogged my sprayer more and I have never clogged a sprayer so I think that is why everyone uses 70%, I think it evaporates to quickly at 90%. I hope that makes sense. But I wasn't really testing 70% vs 90%, I was testing the water vs alcohol. I think I will be using the alcohol and shimmer paint for now on.
I have used tattered angels misters before, they seem to really buckle! Other brands not so bad so it is a trial and error thing!
Tried the shimmer paint from stampinup with alcohol and it also clogged. Then I added a little water and it didn't clog and seemed to mist more evenly.
