Up to 5kg (5 litres) of epoxy resin can be coloured using a singe 20ml bottle of CULR™ pigment, making them the most concentrated resin pigments available whilst the advanced liquid formula ensures that these intense pigments disperse in seconds. Better still, the concentration of these vibrant liquid pigments and the special epoxy-compatible carrier means that your pigmented resin will still cure with a pristine surface.
10 Colour Sets
The 10 colour starter sets include all 8 foundation colours plus black and white and is perfect for resin artists and creatives wanting total freedom to create an infinite number of colours.
10 colour sets contain:
Cosmic Purple, Indigo Blue, Topaz Green, Leaf Green, Milk Choc Brown, Tangy Yellow, Tomato Red, Fuchsia Pink, Jet Black, Super White
The exact amount of pigment needed will vary depending on the colour and intensity required but will be between 0.2 and 1%.
For resin artists creating flow art -type pieces or makers wishing to create realistic multi-tone marble / stone coat effects, CULR pigments have been developed to work together as a complete colour system, allowing almost any colour to be created simply by blending any of the 8 foundation colours whilst adding drops of white or black can adjust the saturation and brightness to create infinite possibilities.
Very often, Super White is added to other colours to change their saturation and opacity.
How to Use
CULR™ pigments are super-easy to use; just drip the desired amount of any colour into either mixed resin and hardener or into just the resin side only (if you want to pigment the resin in advance of using it).
Depending on the strength of the colour required and the actual colour you’re using, you’ll need between 0.1% and 1% of pigment. The table below gives you an easy reference as to how much pigment to add or simply keep adding drops until you get the desired colour strength. Remember that CULR pigments are super-concentrated and so you only need a tiny amount to achieve stunning, vivid colours.
|Amount of resin||20g||50g||100g||1kg||5kg|
Some of the bright colours (such as Tangy Yellow and Tomato Red) are so pure and bright that they will remain slightly translucent, even at higher concentrations. To make these colours opaque, simply add a small amount of Super White.
CULR pigments are designed specifically for use with clear epoxy resins. They have been thoroughly tested with the GlassCast range of casting and coating resins but should also work with most other clear epoxy systems, although we always recommend conducting a test first.
CULR pigments are not suitable for use with alternative resin types such as polyurethane.
