Today i had a brainstorm, (oh oh) i looked at a site that had resin being coloured with other than resin pigment. They used acrylic paint.
Well i tried it and it was no good, sorta worked but not very good.
Here is the site i found.
Then i looked up and saw it "soft plastic lure colour". I make soft plastics and i used a colour that goes into the liquid plastic to dye it.
I made up a small batch of resin and put three drops in. It mixed in extremely well and coloured the resin great. Then i thought id try some green and pink fleck sparkles ( fine) again from lure making and guess what , great. The sparkles suspended in the resin and when set it came out like a sparkly gelcoat boat finish.
In the bottles i got there was about 80gms. I see on the net that 100gms cost about $19 Aus from within Aus.
The bottles i have cost $4.99 + postage Colour
Glitter ( make sure you get the fine stuff) is $5.50 + postage Glitter
I have dealt with this company a bit and they are very helpful, its a family operation in Canberra.

Ill put a pic up as soon as the camera is charged.
