Craft Resin Ratios for Miniature Food

Craft Resin is a clear watery medium that sets hard and clear after a catalyst is added. It can be colored with paints and can be made into all sorts of liquid dressings, gravy and sauces for miniature food. The product I currently own is from Japan. The smaller bottle is the (B) catalyst while the larger bottle is the (A) epoxy resin. By mixing craft resin and different types of paint usually in a mixture of 2:1 (A:B), different textures can be made.

Craft Resin Ratios (each number noted is 1 drop - using a needle to drip the color into the resin works)
 Each A:B ratio is in 2:1. The numbers are there for your convenience depending on how much you need for each mixutre.
