Click here to purchase our thermochromic pigments!
You have the image of a finished product in your mind. You have all of your materials in front of you. As you get ready to immerse yourself in the creation of your work of art, you freeze. What ratio should you use?
If this has ever been you, (or this is currently you and this situation is what has brought you to this blog post) look no further! Listed below are all of the ratios you need to know when mixing our products with one another to get you the best results, regardless of the nature of your project.
Resin to Hardener Ratio:
Measure epoxy resin and hardener to a perfect 1:1 ratio by volume. Mix thoroughly and consistently for 3-5 minutes until there are no streaks. This ratio must be followed precisely in order for you resin piece to cure properly.
Glow Powder to Resin Ratio:
A 1:4 ratio, 7 grams of glow powder for each ounce of resin and hardener mixture. This ratio is designed to give your resin piece the brightest and longest-lasting glow. However, there is room for experimentation if you wish to use more or less glow powder.
Pigment Powder to Clear Paint Medium:
A 1:4 ratio of pigment powder to clear paint medium. This ratio is designed to give your paint the brightest and longest-lasting glow. However, there is room for experimentation if you wish to use more or less glow powder.
Pearlescent Powder to Resin Ratio:
1 Gram of Pearlescent Pigment Powder for every ounce of resin and hardener mixture. We believe this to be the perfect ratio when using our pearl powders with our resin, however, you may use more or less pearlescent powder to your resin to get your desired effect.
Thermochromic Powder to Resin Ratio:
1 Gram of Thermochromic Pigment Powder for every ounce of resin and hardener mixture. We believe this is the perfect ration when using our thermochromic powder with our resin, but feel free to experiment with this ratio if you feel a different ratio would better achieve your desired effect.
