Here's a short tutorial that shows you how to cast epoxy resin using dry metallic pigments and adding isopropyl alcohol to "Sizzle" it up a bit!
Isopropyl Alcohol 91%
Rubbing Alcohol there's usually 70% and 91% get the highest concentration you can find!
Stone Coat Countertops - Metallic Pigments
Mica powders DO NOT react the same way as metallics
Resin - Stone Coat Countertops - Stone Coat 1:1 Resin
Experiment a bit, just keep in mind the alcohol is a solvent so if you add too much it will basically dissolve the resin.
I'm working on a project titled "Everything About Epoxy Resin"
So far it explains resin basics and choosing the proper resin for your project. The next entry will explore mold making and then various pigments
