    MIXING TIPS FOR NEONS

    Are you having a difficult time mixing the pigments or just find yourself stirring and stirring? Or even worse, finding tiny specs in your finished product? This is mostly the cause of not mixing and breaking down the pigment enough.

    Due to the granular nature of specialty pigments such as neons, glow in the dark, etc. these pigments are typically a little more difficult mix and breakdown.

    If this is the case, place the pigments in a small cup, use denatured alcohol and wet the pigments, stir until it has a consistency of a paste. Stir until they break down.

    We also have a very short video showing the process HERE

    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.

     

    SOAPS RATIOS

    Soap - Cold process 2 tsp per lb of oils
    Soap - Hot process ½ tsp lb of MP base

      NOTE: Due to the white MP base, it will always create a pastel color.

     

    AUTOMOTIVE / REMOVABLE PAINT RATIOS

    DO NOT use for these applications. Neon pigments are not UV resistant and will fade over time under constant UV (sun) exposure. 

    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.
