Default Method for colouring and texturing epoxy resin

I found by experiment that I could tint normally clear epoxy resin very easily using laser toner powder (laser printer).

I needed to achieve a dark anthracite colour to fill in a chipped surface.
I am aware that black epoxy is available but did not have any nor did I want to purchase a tube especially for this very small job.

I used black toner powder, added while mixing the clear adhesive and hardener together. While setting I noticed that the result was going to end up too glossy compared to the base material so while it was still tacky I dusted the surface with more toner giving a matt look. The results were surprisingly good.

I have not tried with magenta, blue or yellow toner or any blending of these.

Best Regards
Chris
