New Pantone Color Formulas using Nunn Design 2-Part Epoxy Resin and Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments.

Last May, we created a blog post that taught our customers how to create the 2017 Summer Pantone Colors using Nunn Design 2-Part Epoxy Resin and Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments: How to Make 2017 Summer Pantone Colors with Colorized Resin. Since then, we have received many requests for additional color formulas. Our thanks go to Heather, who spent another one of her Art Days creating these color formulas for all of us.

Before we go into the formulas, let’s recap how to mix and colorize the Nunn Design 2-Part Epoxy Resin.


Learn How!

Supplies Needed:


  • Nunn Design 2-Part Resin Kit
  • Resin Mixing Cups
  • Resin Stir Stick Narrow
  • Resin Stir Stick Wide
  • Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments

Others:


  • Wet-wipes
  • Toothpicks
  • Plastic bag for work surface
  • 
Tape
  • Plastic gloves

Step 1:


Read the resin instructions for safety concerns regarding the Nunn Design Resin. When I work with resin, I always:

  • Place a large plastic bag over my work surface and tape it down.
  • I make sure I have ventilation in my workroom.
  • I wear gloves.
  • I wear glasses (readers because I can’t see anymore. Plus it protects my eyes!).
  • I have a pile of wet wipes handy.

Step 2:

Place one cup (included in the Nunn Design Resin Kit) onto your table. For curing purposes, it is very important that the resin be an exact 1 to 1 ratio of Part A and Part B. I suggest getting your eyes level with the resin so you can see the lines on the measuring cup. Pour Part A of your resin kit up to the ½ fluid ounce mark on your measuring cup. Pour Part B of your resin kit into the same cup until it is filled to the 1 fluid ounce mark. It is important to pour Part A first and then Part B. It is some chemical thing about the part A being heavier or something.


Step 3:

Set your timer for 2 minutes. Using the stir stick from your kit (a popsicle stick or coffee stir stick will work great too), slowly and carefully stir your resin scraping the sides as you stir. Stir for the full 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, scrape both sides of your stir stick on the edge of your resin filled cup.

 


Step 4:

Once your resin is fully mixed, pour the resin into a resin mixing cup up to the 1 teaspoon line.


Step 5:

Squeeze a little of the Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments onto a plastic bag. To prevent your Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments from being contaminated with mixed resin, you will want to use a fresh toothpick with each “toothpick tip” worth.  I cut my toothpicks in half so I could easily use both ends.


Step 6:

The Castin’ Craft Opaque Pigments are very potent. Let’s define what a “tiny toothpick tip” and a “toothpick tip” amount of colorant should look like. This is not an exact science. If you don’t get the exact amount, your color will still come out fairly close.

A “tiny toothpick tip” should look like this.

A “toothpick tip” should looks like this.


Step 7:

Add the required amount of Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigment to the mixed resin following the formulas for each of the Pantone colors. If you want to make more of any one color, double the batch!


Step 8:

Once all of the Castin’ Crafts Opaque Pigments are added into the resin, stir everything together with a stir stick until fully mixed.


Here are 22 New Color Formulas!

In the testing, we came up with variations of colors. We thought we’d include all of our findings because all of the colors are oh so great.
