You will need:
- knife, doesn't have to be sharp
- Hand sanitizer or Rubbing alcohol
- palette you want to depot
- storage palette
- I actually used the plastic shadow cover from the palette, but newspaper or something will do
- washable towel
A) Prepare the glue removing liquid as shown in picture to the left. This is why I like to use hand sanitizer because it actually stays in place rather than spill all about.
One: Continue from the scissoring motions in the step above, open up the casing until you can hold it it with a finger or few. then use the tip of the knife to push up the shadow from underneath first - then - slide it into the gap from above as shown in the above right picture.
You have to be very careful with this technique as the shadow is very susceptible to popping out too quickly and thus more likely to shatter. As you can see above the pigments were already coming out of the pan as I pushed it up.
Two: this step I prefer. When you feel that you've slid the knife completely under all shadow pots, completely (and slowly) lift up the casing as shown below. Then just gently pull up the pot with your fingers, use the knife as leverage if you must. This makes it so much easier for the pots to be taken out.
These pots are just a tad smaller than my other ones, but that's fine by me. Hope you liked today's post and see you soon! xx
