    Hi Jamie, the green is the worst for this to be honest, as the cloth absorbs the resin it will have a tendency to darken, regarding the pigmentaion of the resin to suit the cloth colour ive never tried this myself but ive heard it works well. If anyone else would like to comment. John you have worked with coloured fabric can you advise here, many thanks.

    Wonderful, thatnks for your help, iv also been told by people that a clearer resin might help.
    any more thoughts on this?

    Hi Jamie yeah it would certainly help try the surf resin that has good clarity and is UV stable best rgds

    All the colours darken when wetted out. Blue seems to hold it's colour best. Yellow is poor.

    My favorite fabric is Silver Shadow. It looks just like woven aluminium.
