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 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.

◦ 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.

Perfect for epoxy resin casting

Beautiful deep purple color. I am a wood worker and sometimes use colored epoxy resin for accents or to fill voids, and this color is absolutely beautiful.

Very nice pigmentation

Love the colors. You don't need to use a lot of product & I believe that you get a great value with this product when compared to boutique brands.

Christine Peiffer

Amazing quality, perfect color match! Couldn't be more happy with my order! Will definitely be ordering more from Eye Candy in the very near future.

EyeCandy Customer
Awesome color!!

Such a pretty color!! Mixed it with resin and depending on how much you mix the color variation is so different. From a greyish color to a deep purple. Will be ordering more of this product in the future.

Eye Candy Pigments are really beautiful. I love how dark this is while still being a little purple.
