Problem solved! Between us we had few different eye, lip and cheek compacts we weren't using. Now they're being put to use and a brush and water over powder eye shadows makes beautiful water colours.
Art Sets from Old Make-up SetsI used to use old make-up sets for drawing as a kid. Shading areas is a lot easier with eye shadow than it is with pencil shavings, although you use a bit more. However, if you can't use it as makeup, it's no loss really.
