I am new to Resin Art, which products do you recommend for a beginner?
We offer 600ml epoxy resin kit sizes, these are perfect for beginners to try out our resin and experience the exceptional results they can create. We recommend our Apex Resin® All Purpose as a good option to try first as this is a good all rounder resin for most projects. We also offer resin mixing kits perfect for mixing ready to pour, make tidy up easy and can be used over and over again! Plus Essential Pigment, Glitter and Resin Dye Sets packed full of a range of essential colours to get you started. Our Resin Edges Metallic Pen Sets make finishing coasters edges and drawling geode lines a breeze! Once you are feeling more confident, our other product ranges provide more advanced materials to experiment with including crystal embellishments, Wave Cast, floating pigments and much more! For inspiration and advice, visit our social media and You Tube channel for tutorials using these products.
What is the difference between a pigment powder, pigment paste and resin dye?
A pigment powder is a dry powder and usually creates more translucent, rippled effects in the finished resin. As the resin cures, the pigment powder and resin moves and creates some exciting effects. The more you use this medium, the more you can experiment with some of the effects that can be achieved.
A pigment paste is a liquid pigment and usually creates more opaque results, a little goes a long way as our pastes are highly pigmented and only a small amount can create vivid results. Pastes are perfect to create cells and lacing, our supreme white paste when used in artwork can be moved with a heat gun to create cells and waves with no additional products needed.
Our resin dyes are formulated to create a translucent effect and so are a useful alternative to a pigment paste as they can achieve a translucent effect in your art when desired. They are not an alcohol ink and so can be shipped safely worldwide. Our dyes are a highly pigmented liquid dye for use in resin. A little goes a long way so you can achieve a colourful effect with only a drop or two in resin or a deeper colour if more is added. They can be mixed and matched to experiment with colour and the addition of the pristine white to any of our shades will add a more opaque effect if you choose to. They are a very versatile medium!
When mixing any pigment into resin, never use more than 10% pigment by weight ratio to resin.

Which resin is best for my project?
For detailed advice on our resin ranges visit Which resin is best for my project?
My Resin or Pigment Paste has crystallised and is hard?
All (Part A) Resins and Pigment Pastes can be affected by the cold, they just don’t like it (I know how they feel!) This can cause either the resin or pigment paste to crystallise and become hard. Both are easily sorted :) We always recommended to pre-warm your Part A Resin (Never the Hardener) in a warm, but not boiling water bath before mixing with the hardener. This will return it to a runny state if it has crystallised and bring it back to a good temperature. Pre-warming the resin is always recommended to reduce bubbles. If you are having a hard time with bubbles, this is usually the step you are missing out! To return your paste to a runny state, place it on a warm radiator or in a water bath as above and stir intermittently. The paste will return to normal and produce perfect results: )
