We are constantly working with new paints and we see the huge differences in the paint bases and the tints almost daily. This becomes a real concern of ours as we try to stay updated with the products we recommend. Do not fool yourself into thinking you can take one brand of paint and have it matched by another paint company! Even the same brand of paint being tinted by a “Box Store” will have very different results. We know because we have our own spectrometers and can tell the difference in a second. Even taking a paint sample to a different paint company and having them match it with a “digital color matcher” cannot work. The bases, tints and the ingredients are always changing. It is best to see the actual painted canvas or a sample of the paint rolled on a wall. Remember, you will need two coats of paint and perhaps a primer over dark colors to get the real depth of color from the paint film. Many times we have to titrate a paint to give them just the depth of color they are looking for. Many of our Coastal Colors come from the preparations for our clients!
