I hope the new instruments will be up and running before too long, but these are the last three throws of paint I made, almost two years ago. In each of them there is a similar amount of paint and the paint catapult is left on the same settings. You can see how repeatable the aim is, and although the character of the flight of paint varies it is also more consistent than the earlier throws. In switching from projecting light to paint one of the reasons was to make the shadow (splatter) a less controlled event but also I anticipated that my catapult would not be as accurate and repeatable as it turned out. During my work with the sequence of  paint-throwing instruments I learnt more about how to control them, so I have been building a more sophisticated version that I hope  will lose control a bit more for the next series, although inevitably the process will repeat itself.
