    Hello,
    I was so excited to start my diy lipstick but the measurements in the book made me step backwards.
    I bought my dash to nip spoons thinking it’s what I’ll be using for my projects but it looks like I need another kind of spoon and weighing scales that can weigh the smallest Oz.
    Anyone use this spoons to measure there ingredients instead of using 11/32, 3/32, 5,32 etc.
    Can anyone help me out pls.

    Thanks, May

    I’m not 100% sure if I’m understanding your question correctly. I have these spoons https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B0009X1P9S/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1496609423&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=tiny+spoon&dpPl=1&dpID=31azPto8XVL&ref=plSrch

    Although they are named drop, pinch, etc., I measured them using a plastic 1/32 spoon and found that from smallest to largest, they are 1/64, 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4. If you have the same spoons, use those to measure. If you need something like 3/32, you’ll need to do either 3 times 1/32 or 1/16 + 1/32.

    I have to write it all down on a piece of paper then consult the paper when Marie uses the actual measurements in her book.😝

    I purchased a set I like. They have every measurement from 2 tbs all the way down to 1/64th of a tsp. Measurements are also listed in ml on each spoon. Not sure how accurate they are since I don’t own a scale that has that sort of accuracy. They do have braille on them and therefore are made for the visually impaired so I’m hoping they would have some measure (yep pun intended) of accuracy. Got them on Amazon and manufacture on spoon is listed as: Pourfect. They come in different colors and some colors were available as prime and some weren’t so if you want free shipping and to receive it right away be flexible about your color choice.
