Color Mixing…You can’t get it unless you do it!

  1. Thank you for the wonderful guide and pigment selection suggestion. I love the vividness of the results and the care taken to provide explanations and rational for the use of various techniques to achieve stunning results.

  2. I purchased a set of the Modern Theory basic paints as recommended for mixing, and i have a chart. I want to use and love this article by Patti but i am confused with the charts and images in the beginning. They are not captioned or keyed, and i cannot decipher the paints to which they refer in the text. P,ease help!

  3. I’ve been unable to track down your Modern Theory 8 color set in High Flow formulation. I purchased the individual colors but that leaves me without that super color chart you created. Looking for a source for the chart. No help at my local supplier. Suggestions? Hopefully, Jim

  4. Great article! I am looking forward to experimenting with glazing and mixing. I just wanted to note that some of the links are not working: (1) the tint and glaze poster and (2) the pigment technical data links don’t work.

    • Hello Lori,

      Thank you for your comment and sorry for the delay in our response. We updated these links for you. It appears that this promotion for the tint and glaze poster ended a while back, but the Pigment Identification Chart is still going strong, hope this helps!

      If you are still having problems, or have any other questions, simply let us know by emailing help@goldenpaints.com

  5. This needs to be updated–You have removed The Hansa Yellows from the Line which will slightly alter the mixtures as the Benzimidazolone yellows offer more durable film and tinting quality than that of the Hansa range.

    • Thank you for the suggestion on updating the article. You are correct that there will be slight differences in mixes using the Benzi Yellows rather than the Hansa Yellows. We will take your suggestion forward to the committee overseeing our Just Paint article content. In the meantime, if you have not encountered the Golden Virtual Paint MXR, it might be of interest: https://www.goldenpaints.com/mixer
      Thank you again,
