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.

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.

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.
