5 Ways To Color Pixiss Diamond Resin

Welcome back! In today's blog post, we will be talking about how to add color to Pixiss Diamond Resin. I will tell you what I used and how it worked! Keep in mind that when adding elements to resin, too much can alter your resin's hardness. 

1. MICA POWDER 

"Mica is a natural stone mineral with shiny flakes. When the mica ground into a powder, you get mica powder." Mica powder comes in many different colors and give a shimmery/pearl like effect! Mica powders are very popular when coloring resin!

2. ALCOHOL INK

"Alcohol inks are fast-drying, highly pigmented, alcohol-based inks that are great to use on any hard, non-porous surface including glass, metal, plastic, ceramic, stone, leather and polymer clay. Once the ink is applied, the alcohol evaporates, leaving the dye behind." Alcohol inks are another popular way to color resin, especially with tumblers.

3. GLITTER 

We all know what glitter is, and how creative we can get with it! I loved coloring resin with glitter because of the beautiful sparkle that happens when it cures! If you make resin jewelry, this is a great way to capture that sparkle!

4. UNICORN SPIT

Unicorn Spit is a paint, gel stain and glaze concentrate all in one bottle. It comes in two options, matte or sparkle. When mixing with resin, you won't need a lot of Unicorn Spit, about a dollop of paint for 24ml of resin.

5. RIT POWDER DYE

"This versatile, easy-to-use and non-toxic powder dye is ready to deliver vibrant color to fabric or fabric blends, that include cotton, linen, silk, wool, rayon, ramie, or nylon." Did you know that you can use it in Resin?  It colored the resin to a translucent finish and also left a speckled finish, much like a  glitter with out the sparkle!

So if you are looking for more of an translucent color, Rit powder dye will color Pixiss Diamond Resin.
