Epoxy Question

What do you guys and or gals use to color tint 5 minute epoxy? If I told you what type of fly I need an expoxy color tint for, I'd be laughed out of the forum.....so, that shall remain a secret unless the thing catches a fish and then I will share.

I hope you realize that you may be banned from certain UDL's if you come up with these off the wall creations.

Ron get a small bottle of model airplane paint at the hobby store. Use only a small drop of the stuff to tint the expoy. I'm with Ken on this, you will be banned. Your not trying a MOE by any chance? FishHawk

Thanks Ken and Bill for your "support" The first time I use this planned creation, you will know......I will be the guy wearing a mask and a trench coat on the flats, instead of waders
And by the way Ken......"It" is going to be small , unlike my regular flies that you say scare away your fish when we are fishing together

Food Colouring

Ron, I use some of the colouring my wife uses for cake decoration, go for the ones loaded with E numbers, they provide a really deep colour and you only need the smallest drop. The natural (non-additive) ones are not so good for tinting epoxy.
