    Range Finder Colors - Fun with tinted Resin

    While working on so other projects, I started to play with layering tinted resin. What do you think? Sorry the pics are so bad.

    I think you'll ban me if I disagree with you

    Pretty fun idea to start pouring coloured resins though!! I've only known about white and cold cast resin. How much do they differ in price? A whole helmet would look pretty funny though!!

    The price is just depends on how much aluminum you put in it. You can only put so much. The liquid tint is about $10 a bottle and I can tint maybe 5 or more gallons. The aluminum is about $20 or more a pound. That will do about 1 gallon of resin. This is just what I have found. I would think that others might get something different. Not everybody uses that same resin and things like that.

    I guess the new colors of these RF boxes just broadens the range of custom mando designs just a bit more. These actually remind me of when a new sub-brand of Tuba mouthpieces came out, I thought it was candy at first, because they were whacky colors and transparent, just like the posted RF boxes above. Reminds me, I need to get the transparent blue ruby one...

    I did the red on for my wife custom. Later I will be doing one with a darker red for WhiteArmor.
