Description

Pigment pastes are used for tinting resin and providing color to the final finish. Blend primary colors to create any shade or hue on a color wheel. Mix about 6 to 8% of pigment by weight or approximately 8 ounces pigment per gallon of resin. When using with a two-part adhesive, mix the pigment with the resin first, then combine the appropriate mix ratio of hardener to the mixed resin. Cover pigmented surface with enamel or polyurethane to provide ultraviolet protection.
