Beginner and professional resin artists believe a dying agent to be the right way of adding colour to resin is mica powder. Mica powder is made of stone flakes ground down into a fine powder. The stones these powders are made from are often pigmented and shiny, meaning the powder takes on these characteristics.
Alcohol-Based Ink Dye
Although alcohol-based ink is very effective in adding some colour to resin, it’s not always suitable for beginners due to the potency of these inks. Alcohol-based inks are highly pigmented and provide a lot of “bang for your buck” compared to other dye agents.
Using Acrylic Paint
Loads of artists are trying out resin for the first time, and if you’re one of them, you might have some acrylic paint. This is good news; acrylic paint is one of the few paint types graded for use with resin because the base substances are compatible.
