How to use Diamond Dust: There is no right way or wrong way to use Diamond Dust. Base color will play a small part in how the color will turn out. We do suggest using a color base that best matches the color of your Diamond Dust if you would like to keep the color true. White bases may make the color look slightly lighter and black bases will darken the outcome of your color (as well as show more of a Gold shift if your color contains the gold shifts) Diamond dust can be used mixed in epoxy- this will give you the most bang for your buck. Apply as a "flood coat" to allow movement and the epoxy will self level and streak marks from apply will level out. Keep an eye out of pulling from the edges of tumblers with this method. A matching base will help hide this. Overheating epoxy to get more flow will cause pulling from edges as well.
