I put the powder on the paint tray. I also mixed 2 colors together to create another color. Red with Blue to make Purple, something like that.
With your finger tip, lightly touch the powder, just enough that you get some on your finger, then touch your finger (with powder) on to the clay, once. Just dabbing, no rubbing or pressing. The clay will grab the powder out of your finger tip. This might take a little practice. Also, do not use brush or q-tip. It will not work with this technique. For example, if you use brush, the powder will get into the groove of the stamped bead. We just try to put it on the surface.
