Default SU smooch spritz

Has anyone used the smooch spritz from SU in the new summer catalogue? I am hearing it clogs up, is this true?

I would like to hear the answer to this question too. Mine isn't so much clogging up, but it is not giving me an even spray. The spray isn't fine, it is clumpy. Any suggestions how to get a more even, fine spray on my project?

Mine is not clogging, however, I have found that I need to keep it relatively far away, (like 10 inches from the project) so that I can get a finer spray. I have been experimenting and of course, each spray application will produce somewhat different looks, depending on how far away you are spraying. It seems the closer you are, the more clumpy looking the look will be.

Hope this helps.

You do know that you can order Smooch spritz in several colors.
My favorites are
Wine Berry
Spun Sugar
Log Cabin
Vanilla Shimmer

Here is the link that shows all colors and they have great prices also

I have all four colors that SU offers and three of them work FINE! I am really enjoying using them...minus operator error...I have BAD aim, lol! As a previous poster mentioned they are a little "clumpy" or blotchy when they spray but they are supposed to be, it's the "vintage" look. It just all depends on the angle of your paper and spray and how close or far away you are. It's made to be sprayed upright on paper that's propped up. I really like the Log Cabin, which I didn't think I'd like, very vintage. They do take some fiddling with to figure out how close/far to spray and the look that you like. It's a totally different look than the sprays made with the shimmer paint. Those are very subtle, smooch is not subtle. I think a lot of people were/are thinking they are the same, they are NOT.

My vanilla hasn't worked from day one, I don't think it's clogged I think there is something wrong with the push button top, it won't move at all. I have GOT to call DS (wish there were more hours in a day). Anyway, I don't think the clogging is limited to SU ones, I think it's an issue for all smooch sprays. Someone said not to shake it but to gently swirl it around to mix it before spraying! Something to keep in mind!

When I use my spray, I don't spray it directly onto my project. I have a box (made by Clearsnap) that has a back, 2 partial sides and bottom. I lay the project on the bottom, then aim my spray to the back so the mist falls onto my project. This way it falls evenly and I don't have to worry about getting too close and such. Hope this little tip helps.

I purchased the Smooch in AC Moore. Basically they are to spray a very fine mist. I have 6 of them, but find them to be very inconsistent in spraying. Some just dribble down the bottle.

It's probably the color catcher...we are going to sell this in the summer mini, it's listed under the smooch sprays. I didn't get it and wish I had. The super nice thing about it instead of using a regular box is that it folds down for storage!!!!

I just leave the Color Catcher assembled and put it on the shelf with the other odd shaped craft tools. Once it's dry you can put things inside of it for storage.

I have pretty much every spray brand there is and they all clog occasionally(the ones that have glimmer in them - Maya mists with no shiny stuff does not clog) - not every color but at least one color of each brand I have has clogged at least once - except the sprays I have from http://www.lindystampgang.com/ -they are GORGEOUS and have never clogged. Glimmer mist, smooch and my own mix in ranger mini misters have all occasionally clogged. Just the nature of the beast I think. Usually rinsing out the spray nozzle and hose works to unclog. Glimmer mist is the only one I have not been able to unclog - I poured it into mini misters.

You can shake them, swirl them, or even roll them. The key is to get the pigment mixed up. If you stop for a few minutes you will need to mix it up again. Keep the sprayer clean by wiping it at the end of use.
Also a fun use for them is to use them with a paint brush like water colors.

I saw a pointer for unclogging the tips of glimmer mist. I wonder if it'll work for the other sprays. Remove the spray top & spray it with the compressed air you use on your computer. Also, I find I get less clogs on all of my mica sprays if I swirl the bottle to mix it up instead of shaking it. JIL

I just found out I am going to be talking about Smooch and Smooch Spritz on the Diva Craft Lounge. 1:30 pacific and 3:30 Eastern. I am a little nervous and very excited.

The frantic stamper site has tips about how to use them as well as how to unclog the sprayer.
