I want to use a coloured resin but I think that the best way to achieve this would be to add a coloured pigment to the resin. I couldn't find anyway to order them from in New Zealand but there is a company in the States that sells them in a variety of colours (above) http://www.shopmaninc.com/pigments.html
Terry has some pigments that we can experiment with next week, so if that works we won't have to buy any.

To design and create a skateboard from researched materials. I will make a short deck (retro 80's look) with a kicker (or two) and longboard trucks (the experiment). I need to research what materials will work best and an appropriate shape for the board. When this is done I will design the board on Solidworks and cut it out. Following this I will construct the board, then spray it and attach the trucks.
