Say goodbye to sore thumbs from pressing your pigments and powders! Now you can easily press your own pigments with the Tamping Tool that has a nice weight, is easy to use and fits perfectly into your hands.
Each Tamping Set includes:
• Two Pressing Tiles.
Pressing Tiles are pieces of acrylic plastic which have been machine cut to perfectly nest inside our pans. They come to you covered in a protective sheet of brown paper, which you should remove prior to pressing. If you have been using a coin to press your powders, our Pressing Tiles are used in a similar manner.
• One Tamping Tool.
The Tamping Tool is simply a Pressing Tile with a handle attached. We use it to tamp down the first two layers of powder, as well as to make that last final press.
• Nine magnetized pans.
These pans are made of tin (not aluminium) which means that they cling to the magnetic base of Z palettes and are better able to withstand pressure from the pressing action better than aluminium pans.
