Mixol Universal Tinting Paste
1. What is Mixol?
A Universal Tint that can be mixed into many different products. Almost anything that is water, solvent-based, and quality oil-based materials. If you are tinting something transparent like epoxy, your product will stay transparent.
The addition of Mixols won’t make a clear material opaque. Some examples of materials to tint: paints, stain, epoxy, glaze, shellac, lacquer, glue, concrete, putty, grout, Venetian plaster, lime-based plasters, and materials like chalk paints, polyurethane, paste wax, Tung oil, varnish, wood fillers, etc...
2. Are Mixols made from Dyes or Pigments?
Pigments. The main benefit of a pigment is that the color won't fade, especially in sunlight. Pigments don't dissolve as dyes do. So the higher quality of Mixol helps here, as the pigment size is very tiny and they are not "grainy". Pigments can’t be mixed into just water or alcohol like dyes. Mixols (pigment) need a binder, or product to be added into. Water or Alcohol just isn’t enough.
