Little Bitty Dusters for applying fungicide

Salvia dorii germinated about 10 days ago, and I'm seeing signs of damp-off.  I occasionally find it on cyclamen seedlings as well.  I was using a canister of Captan that's designed to be used as a duster, but when I'm trying to dust just the contents of a 4-inch pot without getting it outside the pot, it's quite difficult and doesn't flow that easily.

Normally, I can come up with some off-the-wall tool or method to do the job I want, but this time I'm blank. The commercial dusters, especially one that has a rubber bulb you squeeze, seem too big.  I haven't, however, had any experience with the rubber bulb duster.  Can anyone offer any suggestions, sources, etc?
