Pressing Pigments Mac and other Mica's

Like everyone else just starting out, i had no idea what i was doing, or what i needed to start... I discovered a CCO within 10mins from me, bought a bunch of pigments, alcohol, pressing mediums, spoons, pots, jars, ect. basically everything needed. Thought this would be a great way to have more items on MUA to swap. (can you tell i am a swap-oholic) so i watched youtube, experimented, and learned. There was alot of wasted pigment in the learning process. haha. I posted pics so that you can see the vibrants of the colors, and so that people who have no idea what pressed pigments are. (YES some people have never heard of pressing pigments) This is also a great way to avoid the mess of loose powder pigments. Even Bare Minerals can be pressed with the right mixture of medium.

If you need any tips or have any questions please feel free to ask. :) Thanks
