1.  Armor Etch - Is there a way I can color it...if I add a couple of food coloring drops to it, will it mess up the chemical balance in it?

2.  Resin Bracelets - Since its a smarter Idea to do these outdoors, should I wait till spring to do them? Due to the cold cold winter air here in Utah?? I guess what Im asking is...would the resin Freeze instead of just setting??


Thanks.

I don't know about coloring Armor Etch. Maybe you could call or email the company? I know that there is special paint you can buy to paint on glasses -- maybe there's some colors/finishes of this that would work for you?

I've heard that when you use resin, you should also use a respirator so you don't breath in the toxic fumes. If respirators do work, I guess it means you could use resin indoors. I've always wondered about this. I think I'll start a thread asking if people use respirators:
