Re: Wall Paint - colour mixing

What Ace1 said.

The first time I looked up the Farrow Ball brochure I brought it along to the paint guys who were contracted to paint my new built. He looked at it and laughed and said that he can get the same but much cheaper, in fact, no additional cost to what he was going to paint anyway.

The second time, I wanted to repaint my holiday apartment and the painter invited me to his workshop and programmed his machine and voila. When they started painting I realized that I didn't like one of the colours (too light), so back to the shop and he put the paint back into the machine, pressed a few buttons, and got the shade that I wanted. Easy, and didn't cost any more than normal paint.

Both painters thought it was fun mixing up paint because I was the very unusual guy who didn't want anything in the standard Swiss white.
