Great color matching method!

Howdy all you aspiring painters,

Have you tried to match some color with a memory or paint sample and after doing some prep work and painting a wall found that the color wasn't what you envisioned?

Well after speaking with a few paint experts I think we might have the answer to this problem.

Start by choosing the color you think you want.

Hold the color sample at the angle a wall would be. Since most walls are vertical this is what we did here. 

Then put one hand above to mimic a roof. This will disperse the light in a way you would usually see it in a room. This should give you a better idea of what the color will look like on your walls.

Was that a great method or what?

happy painting,

Coach Dave
