Use a blender!
I've been using a magic bullet and mixing up about 10oz of stuff at a time, and putting it in a jug to draw out of with my syringe. This little device is a godsend, and I would never be able to do it without it. Instead of spending half my production time mixing xanthan gum and paint into water, i can make about 60 oz of ready to use paint miux in about 5 minutes.

What if you did the 2 chamber type grenade and had baking soda in one side and vinager in the other? Once you took off the rubber band and made it one chamber...splat. One side of the tubing will still be tied off, but could still be folded over with the other side. I think that would work pretty well! Comments?

BTW, I made some of the traditional grenades we are talking about here...they turned out great. The hand pump sprayer was SO simple. Pump away and when it gets tough, push the button and it fills right up! I made 6 in about 20 minutes.

if you need a way of knowing for sure that you marked someone with a grenade put some glitter in the grenade, it's not easily wiped off.
...And Saint Attila raised the sprinkler valve up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy sprinkler valve that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou remove thy solenoid and epoxy the pilot hole, then remove the guide rod, then thread your pilot valve directly to the body of thy sprinkler, lest thou increase thy pilot volume by a single iota, then lobbest thou thy nerfs towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall procedeth to the gates of reinsertion."

3/8th od 3/16th id latex tubing is fairly hard to fill up and won't hold a lot of paint (I could only get it to swell out to about an inch and a half in diameter when full), but you get a great spray diameter, I think I got a good fifteen feet when I tossed the first one into my backyard. I discovered the washers I was using wouldn't even fit over the tubing I used, so I gotta go to the hardware store. I also can't get away with using clothes pins to hold the water back. Hemostats are on the shopping list. I don't recall reading this anywhere but stretching the tube really helps get the grenades filled.

sorry I don't have real photos of the grenade(camera's out of batterys and I can't find the charger).
I have tested this design and it works fairly well.
If you're a Christian paintballer put this in your sig.
