Please pass the catsup

My favorite trick, drawing with fluid paint squeezed through contact-lens-cleaning-solution bottles, has hit a snag. They're clogging up too easily! A nice smooth line comes running out, then suddenly, nothing ... a tiny line ... nothing ... a big blob ... nothing ... a few dots ... definitely NOT the control I'm looking for.

No amount of cleaning the caps or poking the holes seems to help.

So I thought I'd try using commercial squeeze bottles, and the type sold to restaurants to dispense ketchup seems to be the cheapest. So I placed an order today!

I have a feeling I'll be hankering for some French fries once I start working with them.
