Default Water droplets

Found this neat thing on line and decided to try it for myself. See what you think.

Thanks! It is real. I think I'm going to redo it later on because I took the picture from an angle so you can see the table in the droplets. I don't like that.

You can find the idea at: www.dpchallenge.com

Thanks, I can't wait to do it with some more objects once the weather improves.

By the way, the link that BradG takes you to the directions, but to sum it all up:

- Glass pane (mine was 10 x 8" I think) treated with RainX
- Spray bottle
- Plastic flag (I didn't have one so I used a cheap little fabric one, I think plastic is better, I'm going to get one)
- 4 glasses
- Your camera (duh)

Have fun! Can't wait to see your results!

Fun and easy.

Just make sure you use RainX, not the RainX Fog remover. :lol: I must have coated that piece of glass at least 6 times and couldn't figure out why the heck the water wasn't forming dropplets. Then I looked at the bottle and it was the fog stuff. :lol: :lol:
