Paint Color Addition Process & Progress

0

One of the reasons for creating this app is the lack of complete, consistent brand conversions for colors in the model and hobby world.  To resolve this I have begun creating swatches for each paint color and I am using a Nix Pro Color Sensor to determine the actual colors (3 samples per swatch).

If you’re willing to donate a paint to me ($AU5.00) please select the donate button to the right of the pain type you’ll buy me.




Humbrol

Due to my lack of airbrush skills I am brushing the Humbrol swatches.  All swatches have taken at least 2 coats of paint.  I continue adding posts until when the swatch is held to a light I cannot see any translucent areas.
