EPOXY RATIOS

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 the 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.

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.

ACRYLIC POURING RATIOS 

ALL MEASUREMENTS BY VOLUME

For more tutorial visit his Youtube page HERE.

STEP #1- MIX YOUR POURING MEDIUM

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.

STEP #2- DISPERSING PIGMENTS INTO YOUR MEDIUM

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.

STEP #3-  COMBINING YOUR POURING MEDIUM & DISPERSED PIGMENTS

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.  

STEP #4-  WHAT IF?

-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.
