Hi. I realize this is rather a two part question.
1: has anyone tried food coloring as a colorant additive?
2: what works best on cured resin for transparency in color? Watercolor? Sharpies? Something I haven’t thought of yet?

Unfortunately, food coloring does not work well to color resin. There is too much moisture and may keep the resin from curing.
I have used paint pens on cured resin and been happy with the results.

Have you used watercolor markers or sharpies?

I have not worked with either of those directly on resin.

Hi I’m new to acrylic paint pouring and have ordered my resin. My question is…Do I still mix my acrylic paints with the floetrol before adding the colors to the resin, or do I just add the acrylic paints right in the resin? (after I’ve completely mixed the resin of course). Thank you for your help.

Floetrol does not work with resin. It won’t cure.
