    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

     

     

    AUTOMOTIVE / REMOVABLE PAINT RATIOS

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

    Appliance Paint And Coatings 25 Grams Per Quart
    Architectural Coatings (Interior And Exterior) 10-20% By Weight

    IMPORTANT! - If you are spraying this pigment, we recommend spraying it over a white base BUT can be lightly sprayed over other colors for a slight hue of the ghost color. ALWAYS TEST BEFORE FULL APPLICATION!

    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.

    Our Ghost pigments look stunning in acrylic pours!

    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.
