Epoxy resin is the perfect art medium for a wide variety of art and craft projects. Equal to multiple coats of varnish, art resin creates a clear, glass-like glossy finish in a single application. Just mix and pour/brush it onto any surface! Epoxy resin can be applied to wood, glass, terracotta, papier-mâché, tin, ceramic tiles; in fact almost all non-porous surfaces.

What can I use to colour my resin?
You can use a variety of materials to colour epoxy resin, however, each material has advantages and disadvantages.
Alcohol ink: offering gorgeous, rich saturation, alcohol ink will mix in thoroughly with resin offering cool effects dues to its transparent nature. A blow torch should not be used on resin that contains alcohol ink. Alcohol inks are made with dyes and will begin to fade over a period of time.
Acrylic paint: you can use acrylic paint with epoxy resin. Artist grade paint will produce the best results as it offers the highest concentration of colour, and choosing a fluid range will make mixing the colours smoother. Keep in mind that acrylic can take away the glossiness of the resin, and do not add more water to the paint.
Acrylic inks: similar to acrylic paints, these are highly fluid inks that offer a huge range of colours and spectacular performance. Just add to the resin right from the bottle.
Dry pigments (our most recommended): this is colour in its rawest form. As it contains no binders, it offers the highest colour strength, clarity and brilliance.
