I am new to Resin Art, which products do you recommend for a beginner?
We offer Resin Starter Kits that are perfect for beginners.

They also come with a set of e-instructions to get you started. We also offer Resin Mixing Kits perfect for mixing ready to pour, make tidy up easy and can be used over and over again! Once you are feeling more confident, our other product ranges provide more advanced materials to experiment with including crystal embellishments, larger silicone moulds, gilding paints and waxes, leaf, Pigment Pastes, Texture Pastes and much more! For inspiration and advice, visit our social media and You Tube channel for tutorials using these products.
What is the difference between a pigment powder, pigment paste and resin dye?
A pigment powder is a dry powder and usually creates more translucent, rippled effects in the finished resin. As the resin cures, the pigment powder and resin moves and creates some exciting effects. The more you use this medium, the more you can experiment with some of the effects that can be achieved.
A pigment paste is a liquid pigment and usually creates more opaque results, a little goes a long way as our pastes are highly pigmented and only a small amount can create vivid results. Pastes are perfect to create cells and lacing, our supreme white paste when used in artwork can be moved with a heat gun to create cells and waves with no additional products needed.
Our resin dyes are formulated to create a translucent effect and so are a useful alternative to a pigment paste as they can achieve a translucent effect in your art when desired. They are not an alcohol ink and so can be shipped safely worldwide. Our dyes are a highly pigmented liquid dye for use in resin. A little goes a long way so you can achieve a colourful effect with only a drop or two in resin or a deeper colour if more is added. They can be mixed and matched to experiment with colour and the addition of the pristine white to any of our shades will add a more opaque effect if you choose to. They are a very versatile medium!
When mixing any pigment into resin, never use more than 10% pigment by weight ratio to resin.
