I knew someone who pressed cascaphen hardened comets with 2-3% water, but he was using a 12 ton press on  a single 50mm unit. Glitters usually fail if they have been over wet.

Lloyd was talking dry pressing some comps using Mg stearate and stearic acid as binders in a tablet press. Would be cool to find some comps to try it on. I have a small 4 pill press from back in my darker days........

Come on! Name one other hobby in which you cheer as your money and hard work go up in smoke!
