These metallic powders are 100% compatible with GlassCast clear epoxy resin and can be added at a range of different concentrations to achieve different effects.
SHIMR powders can be added to GlassCast to create gorgeous rippled metallic effects in river tables, pen-blanks, counter-tops, castings and more.
Adding tiny percentages will create a shimmering effect where it is still possible to see down through the resin, resulting in a casting that remains translucent but which is tinted by the colour of the SHIMR powder and also shimmers in the light. Adding a higher percentage will produce a solid-colour appearance with an appearance similar to metallic paint.
How much do I need?
The concentration of SHIMR powder you will need will depend on the thickness of your coating or casting and the type of appearance you want to create. To achieve a similar level of colouration, thinner coatings will need a higher percentage of pigment than thicker castings.
