Question Aqua-Painter ???

I was just wondering is there any other liqiud that can go in the aqua painter besides h2o??? Like, Bleach, oils or others??? I've only used water in mine and was just wondering any other tips would be greatly appreciated. I also heard along time ago that the brush tip on the painter could be dipped in Bleach for cleaning the tip ???? TIA..

Doodah!

You can mix bleach & water for bleaching out papers.

You can put a bit of blender medium in it to use with markers and watercolors too

Bleach loses its effectiveness very quickly. The reason it is stored in white plastic is that exposure to the light kills it. Once we did a bleach project and the bleach had only been out of the bottle for a short time and it didn't work as well as "fresh" bleach.
You can store FFW in your aqua painter - just be sure to store point up

Pure Bleach. I wrap the pen in duct tape and the bleach stays good about 3 months.

I have bleach in one that has been full of bleach for over 3 years and it hasn't hurt the pen. I changed the bleach every 3 months or so or when it runs out.

I have seen them at Mike's, HL, and Joann's. With their 40% off coupon you can get discounted price...at those places they run anywhere from $7-$8 each. I got mine at HL and just love it!! HTH

There are two sizes because you might need a larger one for painting in larger areas or for "bleaching" backgrounds. I use the medium or small one much more often but having the bigger one would come in handy for some techniques. HTH
