    I’ve learned that some folks are using those same home presses for making bath bombs. Not expensive and very available (most are made in Turkey) though I have to think some modifications are needed to conform to each powder mold.

      This is what I am currently using, basically. There is a company that sells “The Powder Press” or TKB sells one. It does one pound of pressure. Shimmer formulas I am getting amazing; it is just mattes. I am on my 10th test. No one sells talc in small quantities anymore.

      Eventually, when I get my own place I want to get one that I can control the PSI. I do acknowledge small lab batches are hard to do.
