Default How to sprinkle Pearl Ex without wasting?????

I am having a make and take with pearl ex powders on Monday. I was wondering with all of the pro stampers out there what wonderful way have you learned to sprinkle PE without having a customer dump the whole container on their paper. Please help with your suggestions.

I just had them dip the paintbrush thingy into the bottle and brush it on their paper. No dumping was involved.

Default Pearl Ex

Use the stipple brushes they hold the Pearl Ex really well until you put it on the paper.

Default Heated Pearls

How about when you put it on glue for the heated pearls?

How about putting a smaller amount of powder in the lid, and having them use that rather than the whole container of powder.

I had a small makeup brush to use for sprinkling. It eemed to work well as long as people understood that a little goes a looooooong way.

I keep my EP in flat, square food storage containers rather than in the little jars they come in. I hold the stamped CS over the container and use a little dipper to pour it over the stamped image so that I won't lose any. This should work for PE, too.

I went to Walmart and bought some cheap plastic paint pallates. I put a little bit of the pearl ex colors in each one. My customers love it because they're afraid of spilling it too and this way it's already out.

I use make-up applicators. They don't pick up all that much, but they pick up enough to rub over Pearl-Ex. Barely any is wasted and they can dip it right in the jar.

I also dip the paintbrush in the PE. This works great without any waste. Another thing I've done, is when I go to an Ice Cream Shop and sample the flavors, I keep the little spoons. These also work great for getting a very small amount.

For heated pearls, I've used the stipple brushes. They get kinda messy with the glue, but you just need to wash them out as soon as you are done with them. They turn out fine. I don't ever recall dumping PE for a project. As someone else said, "A little goes a long way".
