Anyone want to share their formulas for wet water and diluting white glue for applying scenery.

Sure...  I don't use water.  For everything I need to dilute and pre-wet I use 70% isopropyl alcohol.  Just open the window so you don't pass out.  I'm serious.

Wet water is just water with a surfactant added. You can use soap or alcohol.

I just use a sprayer with a very fine mist and use plain water.

Mine is a pint or so of water with a few drops of dish detergent.  I also put a few drops in my diluted white glue, which seems to help there.  Again, I make about a pint at a time, so not much detergent.
