Bag the Putty for Neater Results
Mixing water putty and similar products poses a couple of problems: What do you mix it in, and how do you stir it thoroughly without spilling it all over? Grab a resealable sandwich bag the next time you mix putty.
Measure out the powder, pour it into the bag, and add the water. Then, seal the bag and knead it to mix without making a mess. To apply, snip off a corner of the bag and squeeze out the putty.
