(Q) My milky way looks like a Jackson Pollack painting, all big splatter drops, not tiny microstars. What am I doing wrong?


(A) The drops being flung off the splatter brush are too large. When you spray the ceiling with the brush, try riffling the bristles much more slowly and softly. If that doesn’t give you smaller stars, try holding the brush a little bit further from the ceiling. If large microstars are still a problem, try using a little more water in the paint mixture to thin the paint slightly.
