Epoxy Colors or Pigments
We now have colored pigments in stock for our epoxy. You can find them at the link below:
Purchasers should, by their own tests and evaluations, determine suitability of such products for their specific use.
Inorganic Pigment - Stable in water and solvent base systems (Epoxy, Plastidip, Nail Polish, Paint…) Each person sees color a little differently, please contact us if you have any questions about the color before purchase
***Pigment is sold by WEIGHT and NOT by volume like some other retailers. We want you to receive the true amount of pigment you need.
The color shown on the listing, website, brochure or any marketing materials may not be exact due to monitor/printing process limitations. Each person sees color a little differently!

We recommend mixing the pigment into the hardener after it has been poured into your mixing container, this allows for the pigment to get well mixed without the risk of the epoxy setting up during the mixing process.
You will want to start with small amounts of pigment and mix it into the hardener then add more according to what you are wanting. You can always add more if it is not enough.
Once the pigment is mixed into the hardener you can then add in your resin and follow the mixing times of the epoxy instructions included in the box with your order.
Once the resin has been mixed into the colored hardener according to the mixing instructions included in the box with your order it needs to be poured onto the surface immediately so that it does not set up in the mixing container.
There really is not a standard calculation for mixing epoxy, and there are too many variables to account for. We have researched and found a range between 1.5-4oz per gallon of epoxy is ‘standard’. Pigment type, effect, base poured on, desired look, opaque or transparency, etc. all affect that mix ratio. We highly recommend to always do a small test pour to see if that is the desired ratio for the project.
**when using Scarlet, Firebrick Red, or any other type of red pigment, we recommend having a black surface underneath to get the true color. The lighter the surface underneath the red pigment the lighter it will look.
