Color it resin

Greetings to all Orchidians, Is there any one out there who can help
me find a supplier of the Color it UV activated resin. I have found
a supplier via the web in South Africa but have had no luck in
getting a reply out of them. I would like to purchase a set as soon
as possible, cost withstanding, so that I may complete my latest
master piece. I do recall seeing this product available through Rio
Grande a few years ago but they do not seem to have it in their
latest catalog.

Hello Terence, : )

I hadn’t seen it in Rio’s Catalogue, but Gesswein Co. Inc. Tel: 1-800-544-2043 x 287 in CT:
203-366-5400 lists “Colorit” for sale in their online catalogue:
Digital Catalogs & Brochures In the “Select Jewelry Category”…
choose “Decorative Finishes”… and in the “Select Subcategory”
choose “COLORiT.” Hopefully they can supply to you overseas.

There’s an informative post in the “Orchid Archives” regarding
“COLORiT’s.” by someone at Gesswein Co. They’ve included their
contact info. at Gesswein and you can probably email them for
additional on ordering it .

also seems to supply “COLORiT” in Europe and World wide:

‘Colorit’ resins and curing appliances are available from Australian
Jewellery Supplys, Brisbane and Sydney or Melbourne jewellery

The equipment is not cheap.

Hi everyone, I missed the original post that this response was
intended for… but Gesswein is the USA distributor for Colorit.
You can see it on our website:
