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.

I cannot accurately convey my love for these deep, luscious colors. Some of the colorants I use leave my resin sticky or don't cure well (sometimes only curing on the surface leaving a gross gooey mess underneath) necessitating an additional layer of resin to contain the gloppy mess underneath. The extra layer means extra work. That has never happened with these gorgeous colors - EVER. A little goes a long way so whether intentional or not Queen Resinista Katherine is saving you money. (Oh, get up - she gets all embarrassed when you bow.) You can get a wide variety of effects with these bottles of color perfection, and as long as you stay true to the directions (don't add too much!), they won't change the viscosity of your resin. All hail Katherine!
I only came for the teal and magenta, but ended up purchasing all of them (minus black and white). These pigments work excellently with the resin I use. It cured rock solid and gives a nice, rich color without needing to use much. I'm glad I decided to purchase all of the opaque colors.
