stannous chloride & raku

I am interested in doing some fuming with stannous chloride. I do realize
the dangers and I promise to use EXTREME caution, but I am curious as to the
exact technique used. I raku, so I assume the fuming is done between the
kiln and the can. How much stannous chloride do I mix per water? How much
do I spray. (Yes, I will wear proper protection and ventilation!) What is
the exact techniques used? Can anyone give me some insight?
