I suppose I could experiment with that first.

I’m thinking of using west systems. Will acrylic or aniline dye mix well with it?

You want something that is miscible (dissolves in) with the epoxy. A water-based dye or pigment (like acrylic paint) might not work. However, since denatured alcohol is a thinner for epoxy, and it’s also a thinner for aniline dye, I would say that Monte’s suggestion of the aniline dye should work well.

Both are solvent in alcohol. I have a lot of acrylic on hand (I paint also) I may give that a shot with some 5-min epoxy as a test. I appreciate the help!!
