    Has anybody ever tried this? I want to make some blue rondo, with some blue food colouring.

    Bad idea?

    That would be water based.

    How about paint instead? You can get actual colorant for resin as well.

    A mixture of equal amounts resin and bondo, creating an alternative to fiberglass. You can can slush it around in a resined pepakura piece, and it hardens really well.

    Ah, thanks. I've heard of it, but not by that name. Polyurethanes are sensitive to moisture, so food coloring won't work. It may inhibit the cure. You'll need a colorant made for resin.
