Welcome to dickblick
This is the good old-fashioned, non-aerosol way to apply fixative.
Place the short tube in your mouth and the long tube in the bottle of fixative. Blow gently and evenly, aiming at your drawing.
This atomizer can also be used to spray watercolors and thinned acrylics for special effects.

Handy little device
By Ron P

Comments about Richeson Atomizer:
Before there were aeresol cans, there was this. I've had some experience using such a device in doing stained glass painting with a wide variety of hand-mixed mediums. You need to check the alignment of the end of the medium drawing tube (vertical) being directly centered with the end of the thrust tube (horizontal)at a near 90 degree angle. It takes a great amount of wind and just the right tube angle, distance, and of course aim. Practice-practice-practice, until you're light headed. A cheap, handy little tool for your paint kit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It does what it's meant to do, as Long as you get the angles right you're golden. Just try to practice with water before you try paint.
Hard to find mouth atomizer found at Blick.
from Wichita, KS
I've looked at all the local art supplies stores for one of these and most didn't even know what I was talking about. I went to Blick on line and found it right away.
Lightweight, pocket-sized. Sprays unevenly at times.

This site has everything imaginable. From the paper I need to things you would never find in a store. I think the quality and the price is perfect. I always get my items superfast as well. Great job Blick.

Great idea and easy to use. A lot better than spattering with a loaded brush

It works, once you figure it out.
At first I had the same problem as the previous reviewer. Then I saw one being used in a small squeeze bottle. The nozel of the squeeze bottle is cut open just enought to get the suction tube in, then the squeeze bottle is squeezed to bring the liquid up the suction tube. Then spray away.

I've used a similar product for years doing charcoal and pastel portraits. This one has two problems: 1. The blow-through tube does not come close enough to the top of the vertical supply tube. 2. The blow-through tube is too large at the end, it should taper more. The other style that I used for years works well with half acrylic gloss medium and half water. The subject tool can spray water but fails miserably with any viscosity at all. Maybe it would work for a varnish or similar thin fluid, but you wouldn't want the health risks of using it for that. I bought several and they are just junk.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
