Coloring Epoxy
By Mike Scanlan

I have tried most dyes, paints, chalks etc. in order to color two part epoxy and still maintain that see-through quality.

I have found that most agents will turn dark or black when mixed with the two part epoxy. The best solution I have found is available at better art supply stores. Dr. Ph. Martin's concentrated Transparent Water Color Ink. It is available in numerous colors, comes in 1/2 oz. bottles, and provides an excellent see-through epoxy.

Just use the smallest amount; I dip a pin into the ink and apply a very small amount to the mixed epoxy, add more until desired shade is achieved.

Dr. Ph. Martin's is manufactured by Salis International Inc., Hollywood, Florida 33020 U.S.A.. ~ Mike Scanlan
