    It's been a while since I tried to tint my plastic before pouring it and of course I then had issues. I was using Por a Kast in mixed in some lacquer paint to part b prior to mixing and I could not get it to mix in. It would stay separated like it was oil and water? I swear I've done this before and it worked. Any thoughts?

    I use ........

    I use IE 3030 and mix both part A & B together and then add laquer paint and it has always worked for me.

    Do you tint part B or after mixing?

    After mixing I think.
     
  6. I'll give you a tip on what not to do. Don't use water based paint to try and tint your plastics unless you want a foamed up bubble filled casting. I use so strong from smoothon
