WATER WHEN DECORATING
These are a few suggestions on how to use water when decorating:
1) Have a large jar with a wide neck for washing your brushes. Keep changing the water as a clean brush helps to keep the paint clean. Read more about: Pots – With water for cleaning paint brushes
2) Have a bottle of water with a narrow neck, so you never put a dirty brush into it so it is kept clean and can be added to the colors, should they dry or become too thick. Read more about: Bottle for water
3) If you want to be very economical, keep the dirty water and let it settle so the paint falls to the bottom of the jar, then tip off the water and keep the paint that has collected at the bottom. When you have a good amount of this, mix it all together. Fire some on a small test piece to be able to see the end result, and then add other colors to make into one that can be used.
