    I tend to mix in the pan but it can be a little messy. I also mix xanthan gum with the rubbing alcohol to make them stick together better, seems to work on the glittery eyeshadows too xx

    Where do you buy this stuff to do it with & do they come out really pigmented (like they would as pigments?)

    rubbing alcohol is just surgical spirit and can be bought from any chemist on the high street... unless it has to be ispropyl alcohol in which case amazon is your friend
    as for xanthan gum pretty much any supermarket or healthfood store will stock it
    palletes could also be bought from artists supply stores...

    CPC is this: http://cpc.farnell.com/

    Swatches....



    Those are Naked, Blue Brown, Chocolate Brown, Old Gold, Copper Sparkle and Pink Bronze



    Those are Spiritualize, Antique Green, Pastorale, Teal, Viz-a-Violet and Grape



    Those are Golden Lemon and Dark Soul.

    I got the pigments from Bullet off here who I know off the internet, she sold me some samples so I pressed them.

    Also I'd love to go to IMATS but I can't afford it right now. Will you look out if there are any empty pans there which I could buy please? xx

    Wow I'm quite suprised! They look pretty spot on!!! Will have to give it a bash one day soon.

    Would definitely like to try it with sugarpill pigments and barry m dazzle dust.
