How the heck...RGB value from HD custom color formula?

Thanks in advance for a straight answer, any frustration you sense is directly with HomeDepot.

Beyond frustrated with being told over and over to bring in a swatch to be matched.... I simply need the RGB value for color coordination work I do.  If I can't get the RGB, I cannot research coordinating colors.  This "special" HD formula is trapping me.

Need a straight answer how to get the RGB value from the HomeDepot/BEHR custom color formula?  Label on the can says:  Base 1050 / CLRT 384 / CL 3 / LL 12.

I get that the "Base" will affect the blah blah blah... I don't care about the finish, I just need the RGB.

If you are asking which tints are in the paint in terms of RGB, the above formula has no red, green or blue. The formula calls for 3 drops (3/384ths of an ounce) of yellow oxide ( sometimes called raw sienna), and 12 drops of raw umber.

Your formula was shot into "Ultra Pure white" flat paint. This is a very bright white with nothing but the titanium  dioxide in it. Most manufacturers call this a "No.1 Tint Base". It initially has no colorant in it to pull off the color by dulling it, as many paints called "White" do.

The resultant paint is a slightly creamy off white which would look fine with almost any color.
