Use Alumilite dyes to color your casting resins! Dyes can be used in clear resins for translucent castings, with epoxy for dynamic coatings, or in opaque resin for solid, dynamic colors.
Translucent colors include green*, yellow, red, blue, brown, orange, violet, and ocean blue.
*Note that Green translucent dye when added to clear resin often times will shift to a blue color with time. This is due to a shift in hues (yellowing) over time, which in turn casues a shift in color from blue to green.
Opaque colors include white, black, flo red, flo orange, flo yellow, flo green, tan, beige, and dark brown. Some translucency can be achieved by adding an incredibly small amount of these dyes to clear resin.
1 oz. Complete Set (All Colors) does not include Tan, Beige, and Dark Brown Dye

I came to the resin hobby through UV resins, and I love my Alumilite dyes. They beat the intensity of other dyes or alcohol inks that I had used before! A little goes a very long way, so invest in a box of toothpicks for adding color. You very rarely will need a full drop unless you are mixing a considerable amount of resin (gallons) that needs a tiny tint or if you want INTENSE colors. Did I say intense? I mean it! Every color I own is well worth it!
It doesn't take much to achieve an opaque color. I did a test mix with resin about the size of a half-dollar coin and dipped the tip of a toothpick into the bottle and the results were beyond translucent. A very potent tint. A little goes a very long way. I would even say I might like a reducer for this as it may even be too strong for a small project.
We purchased the Ocean blue dye for our river table. A tiny bit of dye goes a long way and it's a beautiful color!
I do a lot of resin work and Alumilite is consistent which is very important to my business. All the products work better than all the others I have tried so I highly recommend Alumilite.
