Making shark cartilage from epoxy resin

    Hi all
    I have recently acquired a GWS jaw from a collector here in South Australia to restore. Unfortunately the jaw has been kept in a garage in quite humid conditions, for the past 15 years.
    The lower sides near the joints are quite rotten, and I have removed the fiber, as far down as possible. I contacted Epo Grip and suggested I use one of their 2 part products to re-build the removed cartilage. They also told me the material can have dry paint tint added to it. Obviously it would need to be the same colour (or very close) to the colour of the cartilage.
    Can someone tell me what brand of paints these are, and where would I get them from?

    I would ask Epo Grip,, , they should know of the kind of paint to tint with,, since they made the suggestion,, shouldn't they?

    Thanks Mr T
    Yes, I have emailed them and asked them to suggest what they consider to be appropriate paints that will mix with their products.
    Waiting for an answer.
