I guess the orange must be a standard ral colour or something, so just need to find an innert colouring agent, however, I assumed all would be white, and would need a paint of orange flow coat to finish ?

When new the colour will be close to standard - but as it ages it becomes far more difficult to match accurately ...

When I've used pigment before, it's been a thick paste that you added to the resin mixed it in, then added the catalyst. You don't need much pigment, it goes a long way.
