To colorize epoxy, you can use epoxy pigment. These pigments are available in countless colours, sizes and varieties. But which epoxy pigments are there? It can be quite tricky to find the right pigments for your project. Whether you are an experienced artist or just starting to explore the world of resin art pigment, in this article you will learn all about the different types of pigments and how to use them to colour epoxy.
Epoxy pigments are dyes specially designed for mixing with epoxy resin. They are available in powder, paste or liquid form and can be used to colour epoxy in a variety of applications, such as jewellery, coasters, artwork, tables and flooring. Several types of epoxy pigments are available, each with their own unique properties and effects.
Powder pigments are highly concentrated dyes added in small quantities to epoxy resin to create intense colour. They are available in both natural and synthetic varieties and can be mixed to produce a wide range of colours. Some examples of powder pigments include:
Pigment pastes are concentrated dyes in a thick, creamy consistency. They are easy to mix with epoxy resin and provide even, intense colour. The nice thing about pigment pastes is that you need very little pigment (only 3%) to give epoxy a beautiful colour. Pigment pastes are ideal for creating detailed patterns and designs in your epoxy projects such as screeds and artwork. These epoxy pigments are available in a wide range of colours and are even available in all RAL colours at Polyestershoppen!
Liquid pigments are dyes dissolved in a liquid, usually water or alcohol. They are easy to mix with epoxy resin and provide transparent to semi-transparent colour, depending on the amount used. Liquid pigments are ideal for creating subtle colour effects and mixing different colours to produce unique shades. Examples of liquid pigments include Piñata Alcohol Ink, TransTint and Resi-Tint Acrylic Ink.
