Is your Epoxy Colour Compatible with my Resin?
Vista Colour Pigments are formulated to work with all epoxy resins, including 1:1 resin.

Can you create a metallic Look?
We have 3 metallic colours in a beautiful White, Silver and Gold. We also have a Metallic Booster which can be added to solid colours to create metallics from our standard range of purples, reds, and oranges! 

How do your colours differ to colour powders?
Ease of use is the primary advantage of a liquid epoxy pigment, like our Vista Colour Pigments. Colour powders can be problematic to mix thoroughly into your resin, leaving collections of powder and in turn adding to the bubbles due to the extra mixing. Our colours evenly and easily distribute throughout the mix with very little effort (and bubbles!). Secondly, Vista Colour Pigments have a much lower affect on heat resistance than other additives such as powders. 

Is the colour see through or totally opaque?
This varies on how much pigment you add to your mix, the good news here is, you have a choice to add smaller amounts for a translucent result. Or as directed for full opacity. It is very easy to achieve full opacity, to edge up slowly if you're trying to achieve a semi-translucent result. 

Does adding colour change the heat resistance?
Using Vista Colour Pigments is the best way to limit the reduction of heat resistance with additives. Adding pigments, alcohol inks etc will lower the heat resistance of your epoxy. The advantage of using Vista Colour Pigments is they are epoxy based (not acrylic etc), and are highly concentrated so less pigment is needed. Both of these factors combine to reduce the loss of heat resistance. 

Will adding colour alter the curing time?
A well-used rule is to not use more than 5% of your total resin volume. When using under 5% there will be no significant change to the curing time or physical properties. You would only need only 1% of our pigment (colour dependent) because of it's highly concentrated nature. 

Can I mix the colours?
Yes, our pigments mix together to create a variety of shades and colours. Let your imagination run wild! 

Can the colours be mixed with other inclusions to create effects?
Yes, you can use these colours alongside various inclusions, including mica powder.

Each Vista Epoxy Pigment is highly concentrated and so only a small amount needs to be applied to your epoxy resin.

For tints we would recommend to add a small amount of epoxy colour pigment, and mix into your resin to observe your results. You can then add more as required. 

For a full colour you would add between 0.2% and 1% by weight. For deeper pieces, less colour pigment will be required than thinner sections. Also, there is a natural variation between colour pigments.

With black colour pigments having more opacity than yellows by their very nature - and so more pigment would need to be added for a yellow, for example. 

Hints and Tips:
For smaller volumes of epoxy resin, try dipping a toothpick or similar into the colour and mixing in. You can also read our blog post about our Epoxy Colour Pigments!
