Product story

Follow these four simple steps to mix more than 1,500 color combinations:

  1. Look in the Color Index for the subject you want to paint—for example, "Broccoli."
  2. Find the Color Recipe with the subject's recipe number ("81") and a photo of the actual paint mixture.
  3. Use the Color Mixing Grid to measure each paint color.
  4. Mix the color.

It's that easy! You’ll also learn about color theory, mixing values, complementary colors, graying color naturally, mixing portrait colors, rendering skies and clouds, and more.
