|CTMH Thanks Stamped with CTMH Black Archival Ink|
The reason why glossy paper works well for this technique is that the liquid needs to stay on top of the paper for as long as possible so that it can be moved around. Some applicators work better than others for dispersing the ink and blending solutions. One of my favorites is cotton balls because they hold the liquid well and are inexpensive. You can also try sponges, rags, q-tips and see what works best for you. With the other applicators you may get a different look than polished stone, but it can still be pretty spectacular in appearance.
