Coloring/tinting Epoxy

5 posts in this topic

I find it strange that I cannot search these forums for the word "Color"??? :wacko:

My question is - Is it possible to add a color tint to epoxy before you apply it? If yes, what do you use?

I haven't had a need to, but there's no reason why you can't use dye to color epoxy. Mix it in after mixing up the epoxy batch. Epoxy is pretty forgiving about adding stuff after the batch is mixed. I would use dye dissolved in solvent, not water. If the dye is powdered, mix it with denatured alcohol or try mixing the powder directly into the epoxy. Should work OK.

I have a set of each of the following colors and have used the pearlescent and gold with excellent results. Haven't tried any of the other colors yet. "Squeeze bottle gently, adding dye to resin drop by drop, stirring dye thoroughly into resin before adding hardener. Several colors may be combined to make other colors."
