“I love epoxy resin pigments but how much do I need?”
1. mica powder pearls
This is subjective, but a general guideline is that you should use 1g of powder per 8oz of mixed epoxy resin (or 16g per gallon of epoxy)
Thoroughly mix your epoxy Part A and Part B in the correct ratio first before adding the pearl.
Start off with a little and add more until you achieve your desired level of color.
Cande Shop pearls are made up of a very fine colored pigment that will disperse in your epoxy and adds a multi-dimensional, opaque color that varies depending on the thickness of epoxy and ambient lighting.
If you want a chameleon, or color shifting color, our Chameleon pearls are what you want.
2. Transparent Dye
If you’re interested in an even, transparent color, our Cande Concentrates will be more suitable. Good starting point is 1 8oz bottle per 2 gallons of mixed epoxy. 2 of our 2oz bottles per gallon of mixed epoxy for those smaller projects.
3. Metal Flake/Glitter
If you want a sparkle that catches your eye, metallic, Metal Flakes are what you want. Start with an 8th per gallon of mixed epoxy resin.
NOTE: Purchasers should always test and evaluate how any epoxy resin pigments look prior to a final mixing for a project. It is up to you to determine suitability of such products for their particular use. The powdered colorant shown on the listing, website, brochure or any marketing materials may not be exact due to limited computer monitor/printing processes. Each individual views color differently.
