So the results are a little hard to see. Let’s talk top row first. The colors seem accurate, although the red one wasn’t as red as I was expecting. If I didn’t have something in my mind to compare it to, I probably wouldn’t even notice. The bottom row, well, you are going to have to take my word on it. I realize they all look the same in the photograph. #photographyfail No doubt the blue, black, brown and violet cast the way I expected. The green? I’m not sure. It isn’t teal, but I don’t know if it is the full green I was expecting. What I need to do is mix a larger amount of resin, use the green again, and recast. On a side note, I was incredibly surprised that a small drop of pigment in the approximate same volumes of resin I have been using made the colors so dark.
Oh and by the way, the white one isn’t it the picture. It cast fine. Promise.
As luck would have it, I didn’t throw away my mixing cups and did have the chance to compare colors. The blue (right) is definitely blue. The green (left) is more green than teal, but I’m still not sure if it is as green as it could be. I’ll be adding that experiment to my list.
