clear lucite handles

  1. I am restoring a clear Lucite EverReady brush and was wondering how you guys color the hole for the knot? Do I paint it or dye the epoxy?
     
  2. both have been done successfully
     
  3. I do both. A little Testor's model car paint.
     
  4. I would recommend both and I would make sure that you nearly fill the recess with the colored epoxy. I am having an issue with my only clear Lucite restore. Some of the paint I coated the walls of the recess with is pulling away. I did not color the epoxy that I set the knot with. I also used very little epoxy to set the knot. Very curious to hear more opinions.
