Use Alumilite dyes to add color to your casting resins! Dyes can be used in clear resins for translucent castings, with epoxy for dynamic coatings, or in opaque resin for solid bold colors.
- Use smallest amount possible to achieve desired color (up to 5%)
- Alumilite Dye is very concentrated. In some instances it's necessary to use less than 1 drop to achieve color in small resin batch. This can be achieved by adding a spec of dye to the tip of a stir stick rather than dispensing into the resin.
- Opaque dyes contain fillers that may settle in the bottle. To maintain consistent color, agitate/stir prior to use.
Translucent colors include green*, yellow, red, blue, brown, orange, violet, and ocean blue.
*Note that Green translucent dye is not compatible with epoxy chemistry and will shift to a blue color. This is due in part to chemistry, but also shift in hues (yellowing) over time of epoxy, causing changes in color.
Opaque colors include white, black, flo red, flo orange, flo yellow, flo green, flo pink, tan, beige, and dark brown. Some translucency can be achieved by adding an incredibly small amount of these dyes to clear resin.
