Many depotting tutorials are great and seem rather easy, but I've never personally taken on the task. I linked up with Slvrlips so that she can show me her quick and easy way of depotting. Things went smoothly and without a hitch, or any dips or chips in shadows!! Yay!
- a candle (or stove top flame will work)
- a fork (that will be soley used for this purpose)
-of course our shadows!
(Don't mind the spoon, Clinique shimmering powder, and to the left of the candle is empty trays.)
What we did:
-used the xacto knife to extract pan shadow in tray from the fliptop shadow container (just as in the depotting tutorial from the above link)
-put the tray on the fork and in a back in forth motion moved the panned shadow over the flame of the candle (as pictured above)
-we saw that the black plastic tray was getting warped, so then,with towel on the table,
-we took the xacto knife and pryed the panned shadow out of the tray. Each time it would flop on the towel, face down... exposing the bottom with sticky glue.
-We quickly cut the the magnet strip, peeled it from the paper and stuck it on the glue.
Back 2 MAC container and the shadow is ready to palette!
As you can see, there are empty, flip top containers and shadow pans... you can see one shadow faced down with the magnet showing....
Thanks Slvrlips for showing me how to do it!
(She just got her Dominican wet set and blow out, gotta preserve the curl ladies!)
Oh, anyone have any suggestions on what I should get with my new back to MAC empties?? If you suggest shadow, etc., be specific, tell me what color and why... thanks for all of your help!
