RE: Color That Coil

Chris: You might be right. However, I will investigate the kinds of
colorants available. Most I've used with Clear Cast, another 2-part
"plastic" epoxy, have been as clear as liquid food color and apparently
alcohol or some other petroleum based compound. But I will check. Thanks.
BTW, "colour?" Going Brit on us?

Ted, just remember that many colouring agents are conductive, especially 
black, blue, and various other dark colours.

I'd stay away from metallics too :)
