I want to put dots all over something I am altering. I want it to look random, but filled in a eye pleasing way. Is there a rule of thumb or trick to this? Thanks.

I have always wondered this as well. Random is not very easy

Is it possible for you to lay down your dots without adhering them first? Then you can play with the arrangement until you are satisfied?

There are a couple of ways I've approached this, assuming it's a flat surface? The first is to throw confetti dots onto it (just use an intricate border punch on some scrap paper to get a handful if you don't have any lying around) & see where they land. If you don't care for it, you can move them around until they please you. If you like it, move them aside one by one & apply the media you're using to make your colored dots (start from the top & work downward so you don't smear your own work as you go).

The other thing I've done is to take a ruler (I know, it doesn't sound very random!) & slide it from left to right across the page, making dots down the length as I go. You can vary the width or not, the height apart or not, as you choose. The advantage to this method is that you can see how it's looking as you go. HTH, & good luck with your project.

What I want to do is use vinyl and cricut and the glass etching cream on martini glasses.

Thanks for the ideas.
