Dear Ice Queen,

My friend said you can use pastels to color ICE Resin. I am not so sure that will work – so please help us end this debate and let us know if this is true or not.

Color Me Curious

Yes you can use both oil or chalk pastels to color resin!  To  use the oil pastels, you will use a toothpic to take a small amount off and mix it in.  To use the chalk pastel you simply “shave” it into dust and add that to your resin and mix well.  Be careful to not to add chunks of either type  because they won’t dissolve, although they will make interesting inclusions!   As with any colorant, a little goes a long way so add slowly in small amounts until you get the color you want.

Happy Creating!

The Ice Queen
