I used "international orange" pigment available on eBay mixed with flowcoat (gelcoat mixed with wax in styrene). No faff at all to prepare in small quantities- one small pot of pigment tipped into a 1 litre bottle of flowcoat, give it a GOOD shake and off you go. The colour doesn't really depend too much on the concentration of pigment; the biggest factor in colour match is ageing and sun bleaching.
