  3. Hey Scott, very informative article! One question about transitions:

    How was this color mixing achieved? It looks so clean, and smooth!

    I’m guessing you start with both colors on each end then use a knife.

    Is there a video or explanation on how to do it? I want to practice that.

    If you could explain or show us visually, it’d be appreciated! Thank you!

    • Hello Bill, Thank you for your question! For this mixing, I did it on a sheet of palette paper using a palette knife. I pulled the color in from each side like you said and started by mixing a neutral gray in the middle. I made enough of the gray to then find the in-between gradations by mixing the clean color with the gray. If you get the middle handled first it is much easier to get the steps between than going from one side to another for example. Glad you liked the visuals and we will see if we can get some mixing videos in the future!

      • Thanks for the reply, Scott. Some mixing videos would be really useful!

        Even if it’s short because it’d help us a lot, also using the MXR web app.

        The video tutorials on Golden’s channel taught me a lot about products.

        I’m looking forward to learn more from you in the future! All the best, Bill.

  4. Hi there,
    Thanks for the article. I also think the virtual paint mxr is supercool and use it a lot.
    If you ever think of enhancing it, I would love to be able to say what colours I already have and force the app to stick to those. I know that probably goes against your need to sell paint, but it would be a real world feature.
    Keep safe!

    • Thank you Andrew, we agree this would be a great addition to the MXR and for folks to be able to see what their colors can do. We are always looking to improve! We will save your suggestion and pass it along to the right people!

      Best,

      Scott
