I was wondering if anyone knows a way to add color to resin (before it cures)? I know you can buy the dye from the resin companies, but I wanted to get out of it cheaper . Also, can you dye silicone, or paint it without the paint cracking?
I can offer this tip that you all probably know. If you paint the inside of the mold before you pour the resin, the paint will bond with the resin, and won't scratch off. It's hard to do with a one piece mold, but works great on a two piece mold. Great for recasting guns without fear of the paint rubbing off when putting the gun in the figures hand.
