    Sounds like Dave is getting good results elsewise, but just in case anyone is tempted to try these rectangular paint pads, I found them really unsatisfactory; those little tiny hairs shed into your coating like crazy.

    As for custom puddle pushers I've found both neon sign makers and the glass blowers at the local universities chemistry department can make anything you're after.

    Interested to find out how you do it - reckon whatever you end up doing you'll likely have to have a large excess of solution on hand to slush about - collecting the excess for ongoing usage (or not) is a question too (?)

    The paper i usually use absorbs the sensitizer in about 3 to 4 passes, what excess their is needs to be mopped up pretty quickly otherwise it bleeds and will leave a stain on the final print, it takes a bit of practice.
