Types of paint and materials that can be mixed with epoxy resin.

It is important to note that epoxy resin does not adhere well to all surfaces. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare the surface properly before applying the resin. In addition, it is important to follow the resin manufacturer's instructions for best results.


Resin is used to recover surfaces and create works of art. Often, it is desired to add color to the resin to create a more attractive effect. Below, I will describe the types of paint and materials that can be mixed:


Acrylic paint: acrylic paint is a popular choice for adding color to epoxy resin. However, because acrylic is a plastic with a matte finish, it can take away some of the resin's own sheen. Also, acrylic paint may not be the best choice if a wide variety of shades is desired.


Acrylic ink: Acrylic ink is another option for adding color to epoxy resin. However, since the ink is a solvent, it may compromise the non-toxicity of virgin epoxy resin.


Epoxy pigments: Epoxy pigments are the most recommended option for adding color to epoxy resin. These pigments mix easily with the resin and do not compromise its non-toxicity. In addition, epoxy pigments offer a wide variety of shades and effects.


Alcohol-based ink: Alcohol-based ink is another option for adding color to epoxy resin. However, since the ink is a solvent, it can compromise the non-toxicity of virgin epoxy resin.


Resin ink: Resin ink is an option that does not compromise the non-toxicity of the epoxy resin. In addition, resin ink is non-flammable, so it does not affect the non-flammability of the resin.


Metallic pigments: Metallic pigments are another option for adding color to epoxy resin. These pigments offer a shiny, metallic effect that can be very attractive.


It is important to note that the amount of material added to the epoxy resin can affect the quality of the final result. Therefore, it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and experiment with small amounts before adding large amounts of material.


You should also prepare the surface properly before applying the resin and follow the manufacturer's instructions for best results.
