Re: screen paint for new zealand

Also I noted that the tint components were Ochre, A Red, and Black. Into a Dulux Vivid White base... That combination sounds more warm than neutral to me...

Those tinting colors can make many hues, but when added in a certain ratio will make a neutral gray. Similar tinting colors here in the States are Yellow Oxide and Red Oxide and these tints are used to make neutral gray paints as well as the Bermuda Beige that is the base for Black Widow™, all that is different is the amount of each tint.

I've ordered some Liquitex Basics Silver... 2 x 4oz tubes... I can play with that as an additive I guess.
Just a heads-up on Liquitex BASICS Silver, this paint only contains mica as a reflective agent and will not darken a mix near as much as an aluminum paint would. It also won't affect mix color as much. In fact it is the reflective paint used in our Cream&Sugar™ Ultra mix where it consists of half of the mix, the other half being a white house paint with a very small amount of magenta tint added to make the mix color neutral.

Re: screen paint for new zealand

Thanks for this. Does the Liquitex Silver push the colour in any particular direction?

It pushes up both green and blue slightly; this is when it was mixed with a white paint that pushed up red and yellow. The mix was a 1:1 ratio or 50% of both paints.

Re: screen paint for new zealand

Could I send someone a sample of Ashville to get a spectrum? I'd appreciate that.

Re: screen paint for new zealand

A quick question. How large a sample do you need?

The paper towel should be WHITE on both sides. The reason to wrap the sample in the paper towel is primarily to prevent any "security printing" that might be on the inside of the envelope from contaminating the sample. It also provides a bit of extra protection during it's trip though the postal system.

Re: screen paint for new zealand

OK I have samples prepared and packaged, I will send off tomorrow. I have two, one is Ashville, the other on spec is 4:1 Ashville and Liquitex Basics Silver. I have the samples each in its own zip-lock bag, and they are taped to a piece of card. Be interesting to see what they turn out to be.
