I'm looking to dye epoxy opaque white to fill in some small dings in a
current project made of melamine. Does anyone have any suggestions on what
sort of dye powder (or other) to use? Or is there a product for this
application that my dags didn't turn up?
here's the high tech version of tinting
you can use powered substances too, but make a test batch. Even wood
dust can be used to help blend in an epoxy repair in lumber.
I've used universal colorants, acrylic artist's paint, artist's oil
paint, Solar Lux, Behlen's pigments, even Testors model paints, all with
excellent results. I needed so little colorant, I don't think the epoxy
cared what it was.
Just remember how many shades of white there are... <G>
As usual, practice on scrap, and trim the epoxy with a sharp tool,
sanding doesn't work that well.
