These are pigments, that have color, but cast clear. Meaning that they don't cloud/milk the resin. The color is clean and pure, and the resin remains clear. The best results come from having a contrasting color, whether added to the resin, or colored within. This accentuate's the color.
An added bonus, these have a two-tone shift. It's subtle, but these are great when altering the resin's translucency is undesirable. The two-tone can be seen, slightly, on the black solid surface.

I wish the camera and I could get along. I just can't take a photo to save my life.

I'm not selling them, at least not yet. There was discussion in one of George's contests, and I referenced these type of pigments.

I have contacted the supplier of these, to inquire about getting more, so if enough people wanted them, I could potentially get extra. I will have to get pricing first, to determine if I can get more.

I'm sure I have some casts somewhere, but I would probably never find them. I have boxes on boxes of blanks.
I do plan to do some more casting, when the weather warms up, so I will put these at the top of the list when the resin arrives.

Yes indeed, and I wasn't aware of powder pigments capable of producing clear castings until I say this thread of yours when I made the statement that you can not make clear castings with powder pigments, I believed that I was correct as I searched many of the pigment (powders) manufacturers in China and none has made any advertisement of these type of powders you are showing and off-course, I would be interested in know more about it and possibly buy some of them.

We learn every day, we sure of what we know but we don't know everything so, you can get surprised as I did with these powders.

I apologise for making an incorrect assumption about powder pigments and their unsuitability to produce clear castings, I also appreciate you making the effort to prove me wrong, I've learnt something...!

Cheers
George

George, I should be the one to apologize. It wasn't my intention to prove you wrong, I only mentioned your thread, so anyone that read it, would know these were what I referred to.

This thread stemmed from another thread I posted about some of the colorants I found on a shelf. These were in that box.

Ironically, I just received an email from my contact. I'm trying to work out the details on getting more of these.:wink:
