JB Weld dye?

Does anybody know of a way to dye Jb Weld? I would like to make it black, I just don't know what to add.
If I didn't load it, it ain't going down the pipe.

Brownells sells dyes for their own epoxy products. Why wouldn't they work with JB Weld?

The techstaff at Brownells is choice, they're all gentlemen and will answer that question...

Good luck

I'm cheap, I just use a black magic marker. It works for me. Several coats will last for years.

Try mixing in a LITTLE finely ground charcoal...This used to be the mostcommonly used black pigment, in black paints....

Paint it with epoxy paint after it dries.
