Different pigments or tints have different ratios but for most I would say 2oz- 1/2 gallon of resin would probably be a good starting place then go with common sense if it looks diluted add more, some opagues you'll have to change that ratio greatly---
is it easy to tell the right tone you want, or does the blue/green of the resin throw you off?
Teddy: Colors in the bucket can and will look different once applied to foam and cloth. Try a little patch on scrap foam and cloth and let it dry to see if you are even close to what your have in mind. Any color shift due to the color of the resin is minimal. The hard part is getting the density of the color right, what looks opaque in the bucket will be a light tint on the foam. Yellows are the easiest in the beginning with blues and reds being the more difficult. Tom S. > is it easy to tell the right tone you want, or does the blue/green of the > resin throw you off?
