Smartie refraction photo - I had difficulties with normal drops on a glass sheet. The water properties would cause the drops to spread. I used a rain beading agent (rain x) bought from an automotive shop and treated a surface first before spraying water on the surface - causing it to bead. Easy then to shoot with an off camera flash and tripod mount camera.
