Coloring Epoxy
By Ray Kunz

Creative tiers of flies that involve the use of two-part epoxy should experiment with using powdered chalk scraped from sticks of artists pastels to create different colors. When selecting a chalk pastel for coloring epoxy you must choose a brand that DOES NOT HAVE WAX IN IT. The art supply salesperson should be able to tell you this.

Unlike other types of colorants, the pastels are chemically inert and won't contaminate the epoxy. The epoxy will just bind together all the powder particles. Also, most two-part epoxies can be thinned down a little using lacquer thinner. ~ Ray Kunz
