Can you mix paint with epoxy?

Mixing paints and acrylics with epoxy is not recommended. 

can you mix paint into epoxy resin

Here’s why... resin is a byproduct of oil. So acrylic-based, water-based and even some oddly blended oil-based pigments don’t mix well. They can get clumpy and even leave a weird film on the finished product.

We recommend Mica powders, concentrate/solvent-based pigments as additives to create your desired colors. 

Powders like Glow powders and mica powders can also be incorporated in our epoxy as long as the powder doesn’t exceed 5% of the total mixture. 

Always test small if you do try outside our recommendations... but we do have some color options within our site if you need. 

We have some in our shop too if you need.

The possibilities are endless, check our website to see all our products.
