The special pigment is composed of mica powders coated with various organic and inorganic pigments to create pearlescent and iridescent effects that mimic the natural look of stone and marble formations. They can be added to any clear epoxy to create an incredible color or these pigments turn to a pastel color if added to a white or gray base.
To use Black Diamond in epoxy, use 1-8g per oz depending on the pigment and the level of transparency desired and stir for the entire time recommended by the resin manufacturer. Go with less than what you think you need as you can always add more. This method works well for powders that are finely ground or don't have a tendency to clump together like glitters for resin. Changing the resin color is easy, and only requires a little bit to achieve results. If you are a fan of river table videos, chances are you have seen the pigment in action. These pigments make life easy by simply stirring directly into your epoxy resin flow art, wood inlays, resin castings.
