Re: Epoxy: Tinting
In Response To: Epoxy: Tinting ()

Tinting epoxy is not a big deal- but I would recommend buying epoxy colorant and not messing around with other stuff.

BUT- I'm curious about why paint won't be durable? What paint have you used? how did it fail?

If the issue is abrasion, instead of tinting alone I would recommend a mixture of graphite and silica. It will add color, but also a great deal of abrasion resistance.
