Your coloring possibilities are endless with this beautiful array of opaque colors. These 10 opaque colors are specifically formulated to color the Resin Obsession super clear resin. Choose from the following colors in 1 ounce containers:
Directions for use: Warm the part A super clear resin. The ideal temperature is approximately 100F for about 5 minutes. This will make the resin a thinner consistency and easier to mix in your desired color. Gently stir the pigment into the epoxy resin until you reach the depth of color desired. Do not exceed 10% of the total weight of Part A as this may prevent the system from curing. *The amount of color you mix into the resin contributes to the total amount of Part A.* Measure the appropriate amount of Part B super clear hardener remembering that the super clear resin mixes two parts A to one part B. Carefully mix Part B into Part A for two to three minutes. Scrape the sides of your cup and stir utensil several times during the process. Cast as desired.

A few additional suggestions for success:
*When making a transparent color is that it is always better to make the color darker than what you need because when hardener is added, it will lighten the color.
*The opaque red and opaque magenta pigments may slightly stain a plastic mold. This can be minimized by wiping a thin coat of petroleum jelly inside the mold cavity before casting.
*For the best results, pigments should be used within one year of purchase.

So glad I found resin obsession! And obsessed I am!
This is my first foray into resin pigments - mostly I like clear. But I wanted to do some pieces w a white background, flowers and Asian ink-style painting, and this seems to do the trick. A little goes a long way. Used w RO epoxy resin - can't comment on how it would work w others!
Wow! I’m going to tell you right up front, never doubt Katherine’s description when it comes to her biz. When she says a little goes a long way, she means it!
Oh, I thought I was soooo smart and put a glob of white into my resin mix, and BAM!!! Heated up and turned into a big ol’ blob.
Ok Katherine, you can stop laughing now I promise to never think I know more than you do about your products!
In all honesty, these are fab colors and a teeeeeeeny amount is all you need to start. Add a little more if you dare, but I’d guess you’ll be fine
These are very thick solid colorants, with a minimum amount you get a solid color finish and they do mix well with the transparent dyes
I didn't buy the whole set of the opaque colors and now wish I had. It only takes a small amount and the color is so rich and thick looking. I have the blue and have used it. I am still a newb and won't post pics because I'm told I am too much of a perfectionist. Lol... As soon as I am able, I will get all of these rich colors. Customer service was fantastic as always as was shipping time. This is truly beginning to be a resin obsession.
