    Q: Darlene asked: "I have trouble using my Aqua Painter - I always seem to get too much water on my paper and then the paper goes funny. Any advice?"
    A: When my Aqua Painters leak too much water, I tap them on a paper towel or napkin to stop the flow. Usually after tapping it off, it works great again. Try these techniques with your Aqua Painter:
    Blurred Vision Watercoloring
    Pearl Ex® - Painted Pearls
    Watercoloring with Watercolor Crayons
    Watercoloring with Watercolor Pencils

    Elizabeth has a hint for the Stained Glass Technique: "Use the Glue Arts Vellum Adhesive sheets and you won't have to hide your adhesive because you won't even know it is there. And, you can trim it to any size you want. It is my preferred adhesive I use on vellum and transparencies."
