I recently bought these embossing pigments (and thought they'd make great resin coloring...  I was right!


My latest attempts created these:

testing my pigments


Pigment, stickers and beads



What do you think? 
Does anyone else use pigment or other liquid coloring with their resin?  What were the results?  What did you like and hate about certain products?  I'd love to know!!!

I don't know about pigments but if you get fine glitter, it works really awesome without distorting whatever picture or items you have put into the resin. Smiley

I use specifically designed resin pigments in a lot of my pieces and have been really pleased with the results. I currently use the opaque pigments, but have used the translucent/transparent ones to great effect, too.

They give such a smooth, rich colour to the resin...

I really like the effect you got with the fish sticker though - pretty cool.

Do you use the Castin' Craft resin pigments?  (they look like food coloring)  I bought them, and tried them once, and was not happy at all with the results!  Perhaps I needed to add the color to the resin near the beginning of mixing for better results.

Thanks for the compliments about the fishy pendant!  Yeah, these new metallic pigments have me hooked!  Smiley

I'm in Australia, and I think Castin' Craft is known as something else down here. I use polyurethane resin and use pigments for that specifically. (Could be Easy Cast?) They're really quite thick pigments, about the consistency of egg mayonnaise (can you tell I'm hungry??)

I put them in once the resin is almost fully mixed and it gives a really nice, even finish...
