Embrace the depth and intensity of Senshi Red, a deep blood red pigment, perfect for those who desire a rich, undiluted red without the lighter pink undertones.

A favorite among crafters, it's superb for adding vibrancy to epoxy resin projects, acrylic artworks, custom slime, fizzing bath bombs, and bespoke jewelry. Its radiant hue also shines in melt & pour soap, enlivens plastics, and creates enchanting candles.

Epoxy : 2 grams per 8 ounces

The most common question that we receive is “How much pigment per gallon of epoxy?” This is a very valid question and unfortunately there is no set answer due to the numerous types of applications and variations. This is why we recommend 2 grams per 8 oz and add as desired.

For example: Are you looking for an opaque or transparent look? Lighter colors may take more pigment to achieve the color.

Why micron sizes matter:

PLEASE be aware of the micron sizes of the pigment. The larger the micron, the larger the particle.

Typical pigments average 10-60um. 

Be aware that larger micron sized pigments will most likely have a heavier density which will cause the pigment to sink faster in fresh epoxy such as deep pours. For example, our Icicle or 14k Nugget Gold is 200-700um and will most likely sink in fresh epoxy faster. To alleviate sinking either let the epoxy settle up a little bit. Or, come back through your project to “stir” it a little more.

Cold process - 2 tsp per lb of oils

Hot process - ½ tsp lb of MP base

Peelable Automotive Coatings (Plasti Dip, HaloEFX, P1Coatings, Pro Line, Autoflex, Etc.) - 50 Grams Per Gallon

Standard Automotive Clears - 25 Grams Per Quart

Appliance Paint And Coatings - 25 Grams Per Quart

Architectural Coatings (Interior And Exterior) - 10-20% By Weight

Wall Paper And Other Architectural Paper Coatings - 1-5% By Weight

Peelable Coatings:
◦ The majority of our pigments can be sprayed through a 1.2 tip
◦ Be aware of the micron size. The larger the particle you may have to go to a larger tip.
◦ The pigments can be mixed with the base color or mixed into the clear and sprayed over the base color.
◦ The base color may impact the overall color of the pigment.
◦ Light colored pigments yellows, pinks, etc., we recommend using a white base or a like colored base. 
◦ Dark colored pigments, we recommend using a black or dark colored base

Automotive Paint:
◦ The majority of our pigments can and have been used for automotive.
◦ The majority of our pigments can be sprayed through a 1.2 tip
◦ Three ways to use our pigments for spraying:
◦ Mix directly into the base color to create a unique blend
◦ Mix and spray with your mid clear over the base color
◦ Mix and spray with your top coat. Typically we do not recommend this due to the possibilities of striping. Also, we use the top coat as a UV
protector or possible sanding of the top coat, etc.

3 parts Behr8300 Deep Base Interior/Exterior Hi-Gloss Enamel. 1 part JOSONJA Polyurethane Water Based Gloss Varnish. Mix gently folding paint and varnish together until they are completely mixed, Go Slow to reduce mixing bubbles.

Pour 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of JOSONJA Gloss Varnish into mixing container. Add around a teaspoon of Pigment (I generally add a little more) into your container with the JOSONJA. Mix until all Pigments have dissolved into a liquid making sure to stir any clumps out at this time.

Add around 3 Tablespoons of Pouring medium into your Dispersed Pigments. Mix thoroughly, being slow and folding rather than whipping, this will minimize the air bubbles.  

◦ If your new mixed color seems to thick - Add a small amount of JOSONJA and stir until you reach the desired consistency.
◦ If your new mixed color seems to thin - Add a small amount of Behr8300 (ONLY) and stir until you reach the desired consistency.

◦ 5 grams of pigment per 4oz

yellows, pinks, etc. you may want to try a light colored base. ALWAYS test before full application.
◦ 3 coats for full saturation. Some colors may require less.
◦ Stay with pigments with a 10-60um micron size. All particle sizes are listed
on our product pages or you can find them on our Pigment Information List.

Materials Needed:

Mica Pigments: Choose the colors you want to use.

Lacquer Thinner: A solvent that helps to dissolve the pigments and facilitate the dyeing process.

Mixing Container: Use a glass or metal container that is resistant to solvents.

Stirring Stick: A metal or plastic stick to mix the pigments with the lacquer thinner.

Protective Gear: Gloves, goggles, and a mask to protect yourself from fumes and spills.

Brush or Cloth: For applying the mixture to the wood.

Sealer: To protect the dyed wood once it’s dry.

Ensure you are working in a well-ventilated area or outdoors.
Wear protective gear to avoid inhaling fumes or contact with skin.

Pour a small amount of lacquer thinner into your mixing container.
Gradually add mica pigments to the lacquer thinner. Start with a small amount and add more as needed to achieve the desired color intensity.
Stir the mixture thoroughly until the pigments are fully dissolved and evenly dispersed. This may take a few minutes to ensure there are no clumps.

Before applying to your final piece, test the mixture on a scrap piece of wood. This allows you to see the color and make any necessary adjustments.
If the color is too light, add more pigment. If it’s too dark, dilute with additional lacquer thinner.

Apply the mixture to the wood using a brush or cloth. Work in long, even strokes to ensure consistent coverage.
Allow the first coat to dry completely before applying additional coats if needed. This usually takes about 15-30 minutes, but check the product instructions for specific drying times.

Once the desired color is achieved and the wood is fully dry, apply a sealer to protect the finish. This can be a clear lacquer, polyurethane, or another wood sealer compatible with your project.

Ventilation: Always work in a well-ventilated area to avoid inhaling fumes.

Small Batches: Mix pigments in small batches to avoid waste and ensure freshness.

Consistent Mixing: Keep the mixture well-stirred during application to maintain consistent color.

Safety: Follow all safety instructions for handling lacquer thinner and pigments. Dispose of any rags or brushes used safely, as they can be flammable.

Finally a nearly perfect red!

When I painted cars for a living, I loved Eye Candy. So when I retired and focused on Resin Art I figured they would be equally as good.I had been having trouble finding a really good 'Red'. Yes I know about the Chemical that was lost during the Japanese nuclear accident which affected all reds throughout Automotive, but come on.Ok. So Eye Candy send me a red. It was actually brown. Tried again, this one was orange.The company suggested 'Deep Red'. It was orange.Then the company advertised on the Resin Art Community I belong to. I jumped right in with my opinion. The Company representative messaged me in a heartbeat and said they have been working hard to improved the reds and gave me 3 options. Another rep said all three were pretty much the same but he would go with Senshi.Wow! As you can see the comparison to what they call 'Deep Red' to Senshi Red is night and day. This is what I was hoping for.Update: 11/27/23: I have been using this red now for quite a while and have had other artist ask how I get such beautiful reds. I don't even look around anymore, I only use this red. I make a special color I call Black Cherry. Add a few drops of black paste and it still keep the red shimmer. I really am glad the company came through for me.

Gorgeous Pigments and the Most Bang for your Buck!!!

Okay, so if you've seen any of my videos, you know how much I love these pigments! LOVE the fact that I can buy sample sizes of 5 grams, 25 grams (which is HUGE) or 50 GRAMS and the price per gram is far and away the best in the industry! I'm developing a list of my favorite pigments from the samples but also tried the Senshi Red after hearing from a viewer and and oh my goodness! It's the same red as Dorothy's Ruby slippers in the Wizard of Oz! Also, excellent customer service and fast shipping round out the experience!
