What are the best tools to use when working with Apple Barrel Pouring Medium?

A variety of miscellaneous tools can be used to create marbled effects using Apple Barrel Pouring Medium and Apple Barrel Acrylic Paints.  Tools to swirl paints such as: Popsicle sticks, wood skewers, an artist stylus, etc. are all helpful.  Push pins, raised platforms, or tin cans or bottles can all be used as risers to keep the project surface off of the work table and allow excess paint to drip freely.  And lastly, tools to use on the work surface such as cardboard box lids, or aluminum pans can be used on the work surface to catch excess paint drips.
