I really love this for a pressing medium, however I used to much the first time because I was trying to do it by weight. The result was a nice matte cream color, which I wasn't going for. However when I did it again I used less and it was perfect! Also the cost is very affordable and a little bit goes a long way.
This is a fantastic pressing binder! I used this alone w/ a little alcohol on the bottom of the pan (and between pressed layers) and had great results every time. Be sure to mix it well into your powders, and don't 'over wet'. Works best when you can count out drops (so I recommend the 1/2 oz size to start out with since it is in a plastic dropper bottle already).
I was so pleased how easy this was to use! It presses absolutely beautifully and firmly. It's also cheaper than other pressing mediums out there. I paid $10.00 for a 2 oz bottle of pressing medium and TKB's is only $4.99 for the same amount! Plus, they have the added bonus of pans, pressing tools, palettes, and over 200 eyeshadow colors! Need I say more?
This is my FAVORITE pressing medium. It works better than any oil/silicone I have tried! It is easy to work with, and you get fabulous results. Try this out, you will thank me for it!:)
I used to use nothing but alcohol to press my eyeshadows. Now that Im using this I dont need much alcohol and when I stroke the brush against the eyeshadow I get little to no fly away powder on the tin. It also makes the eyeshadow better looking and last longer.
Works really well. Just be careful you don't add too much because it doesn't dry like some other pressing mediums. About 2 drops per 1 gram of product is plenty, use alcohol to make it "wetter" after that if you need to. And what a great bargain it is for that price!
This stuff is great! Just one question, what is the shelf life of this pressing medium? TKB Responds: about two years.
.. it would probably be useful to have the exact ration of powder vs medium on this page. But then, it also seems to me that different powders need different amounts of the medium.
i just received this pressing medium and i tried using it how they show in the video by just adding a drop to the tin and pressing but that did not work. i felt like it made my pigments clumpy, i used alcohol but now my eyeshadows smell like alcohol, what did i do wrong any advice? TKB Responds: Best is to contact us by email and we can send links and make better suggestions. However the general rule is to add enough liquid to make it feel like damp sand. Just like you are making a sand castle (not too much, not too little). Also be sure to add the binder powder as well. It helps things stick together. But send an email and we can respond better.
