|No matter which brand of paints a decorative painter uses, projects detailed in pattern books will frequently list colors not readily available-colors which often must be matched for the project to turn out just right.
Back and better than ever, this indispensable, best-selling guide offers a simple solution to these color matching dilemmas, eliminating the need to buy a lot of new paint. Using the patented Tru-Color System, it allows painters to create any project using paints they already have-regardless of the brand used by the original artist.
Following an easy-to-reference alphabetical format, decorative painters can quickly match all the colors of the most popular acrylic brands, including Americana, Ceramcoat, Folk Art, Jo Sonja and 1837 Legacy (plus four oil brands, including Archival, Prima, Rembrandt and Winsor Newton). Where a perfect match is not available, a specific mix is provided. It's a truly revolutionary guide.
• Now includes 20% more oil and acrylic conversions • Saves decorative painters valuable time and money • Enables users to cross match colors among all major brands • Features more than 350 exact color swatches
