Oh, now I get it.
I thought "food coloring" was something you did to your board when you were paddling out in shark-infested waters. Makes sense if you'r in Oz, eh?
More seriously, staining wood is one thing and may work if the colorant is well absorbed to the wood, but adding non-soluble colors to resin could be a major mistake.
classic comment (about the brown trails in the ocean) , mate !
I'd give our version (Dylon) fabric dye a go ...in a fin panel ...first ...
stay tubed ...er... ' tuned' !
ozzy ozzy ozzy ...oi ! oi ! oi !
yes , I DO have 'real ' pigments (AND tints !) , by the way ...I just like experimenting with other stuff , too , sometimes , eh !! :)
I've tried food coloring and it worked for my project, however it's not out in the sun, so....
The thing that worried me the most about food coloring was that there's water in it. I was worried about the water and epoxy not getting along.
Send me your dinged, damaged, and yellowed.
acrylic spray paint
acrylic paint , in a tube
So far , it has been used on
for fin panel fabric inlays...
I also have foam scraps , lying around , that I will colour ... with all of the above three substances . ( Plus , of course , the 'normal' pigments and tints that I posted photos of , previously.... )

...on cotton ...
...on (wax) paper ...
...on a towel... ( it's now become a " workbench " , for 'future projects' ...aha... )
.... a " foam stain " , with food colouring , next ....
(it seemed to 'soak in' , a bit better ... :) )
Wait, is that it? Is this with the coloring in resin or just the coloring itself? I like your experiment, I want to see more of it.
thanks , Monkstar !
1) more to come ! :)
2) just the colouring itself ( no resin used ...YET !)
3) yes , you WILL ...stay tubed ...er ... " tuned" !
