I was lead here to this site FROM THIS POST on getting a transparent colored epoxy.
One question is if I am using an alcohol ink for a transparent colored pour, what happens if I overshoot the color i.e. too dark, and wish to lighten it e.g. dark red to light red.
Other than the obvious and pour in more clear resin, what could I possibly add to lighten the color and possibly not add to the volume of the mixed resin, or if it does, then something less costly than resin.
I am looking to do small transparent pours into CNC carved designs in wood and hoping to see the wood grain through the color. I guess an ounce more or less to fill what I am looking to do but I didn't want to mix say 2, 3, or more ounces if I make the color too dark first shot then possibly too light etc.
I am completely aware to not have to worry about this is to add the ink very slowly and teeny tiny bits at a time but assuming I was just ever so close to the color I wanted and that next drop pushed it over, or the customer wants something a tad lighter is the scenario I am envisioning.
Thanks in advance!! Dave
