Thanks.... I realized what you are saying but I was doing a quick illustration to get the point across without spending much time on details. Should have.

Cool Re: NO PHOTOSHOP (maybe just a little)

first of all good attempt at what is a hard feat to accomplish. Second here are some tips to try a second time around.
1. it is very hard/cumbersome to minpulate water droplets in photoshop
and nor is the fun way to go about this.
2. a spray bottle is an o.k. tool but i have one better
I brought this question up to my photo teacher and showed her some reference material and she knew just what to do:
3. glycerin is the key!!!!!!!!!
glycerin or "glycerol" is (quoted from dictionary) -a
colorless, sweet, viscous liquid formed as a byproduct in soap
manufacture. It is used as an emollient and laxative, and for making
explosives and antifreeze. WILL NOT HARM YOU, JUST THICK LIKE
4. use this instead of water. it is thicker than water but you can thin it
down if nessicary.
5. get a dropper and place "sweat" like droplets on the subjects face.
You can dye with food coloring and place on the face/ whatever also. [or edit in
6. light, meter, compose, and take the shot.

may research glycerin on your own to find out more. works great.

If you don't want to re-shoot. In the Layers pallet use the adjustment layers icon (see attachment) and choose "solid color" choose the color you would like and then fill the mask with black. Use a soft white brush and brush in the color. You can play with blending modes. The photo attached is really too small to see if this work-around is what you are looking for I only played with it for a couple of minutes.
Hope this helps
