Dye for resins

A dye for resins is a specific product to be used with ultraviolet, epoxy, and polyurethane resins. They can be used to add color to resin when it is being used to make scale models or other crafts.

There are a few different types of colouring dye that can be used with resin, including liquid dye, powder dye, and alcohol-based dye.

- Liquid dye is the most common type and can be mixed into the resin before it is poured or molded.

- Powder dye can also be mixed into the resin, but it may take longer to fully dissolve and may not be as vibrant as a liquid dye.

- An alcohol-based dye can be applied to the surface of the resin after it has cured, but it may not be as durable as other types of dye.

These types of colorants for resins are commonly used in a variety of applications, including making scale models, jewelry, and other crafts.

How to use Dye for resins

Adding colour to your resin is a great way to create unique and stunning pieces. There are a few different ways to add colour to resin, but we recommend using dye for resins for the best results. When adding the color to your resin, it's important to use a maximum of 5% dye in the mix. This usually equates to a drop or two of dye. For proper dosing, the bottle includes a thin dropper. Adding too much dye can result in an uneven or muddy colour, so it's important to be precise when measuring.

Best Colorants For Resin

There are several different types of colorants that can be used to add color to resin. The best colorant for resin will depend on the specific properties of the resin, as well as the desired color intensity and final use of the resin product. Here are some options for colorants that can be used with resin:

  • Liquid dye for Resin: Liquid dye is a popular choice for coloring resin, as it is easy to mix and provides a wide range of colors. These are available at Green Stuff World.
  • Mica powder: Mica powder is a natural mineral that can be used to add shimmer and sparkle to resin. It is available in a variety of colors and can be mixed into the resin before it is poured or molded.
  • Powder dye: Powder dye can also be mixed into the resin, but it may take longer to fully dissolve and may not be as vibrant as a liquid dye. Powder dye is available in a wide range of colors and is often more cost-effective than liquid dye. 
  • Powder Pigment: Pigment is a concentrated colorant that can be used to add a wide range of colors to resin. It is available in both liquid and powder form and can be mixed into the resin before it is poured or molded. These are available at Green Stuff World.
  • Acrylic inks: Acrylic paint can be used to add color to resin, but it may not be as durable as other types of colorants. It is better to work with acrylic inks with transparency instead of solid acrylic colors since they tend to dissolve with difficulty. Acrylic inks can also be applied to the surface of the resin after it has cured. These are available at Green Stuff World.

When using colorants with resin, it's important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and to test the colorant on a small sample of resin before using it on your final project. This will help ensure that you get the desired color and finish.
