Thank you very much for the formula and link. That is the base I thought you had, but I wanted to be sure. This base is colored so it neutralizes the old Craft Smart Metallic Silver and it will not make a neutral mix if Liquitex BASICS 'Silver' is used instead - such a mix would be "warm" (push reds and oranges).The base is:
The N6 is:Code:
[B]C&S™ #3 base. 1 quart of Behr #1850 [/B] Tint oz. 384th oz. C 0 4 F 0 1
Thats because i was trying to do this: http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/diy-screen-development-testing/23090-hts-x2-experimental-n8-reflective-screen-mix.htmlCode:
[B]The N6 tint formula[/B] for Behr is: [B]For 1 quart[/B] Base = [B]Behr #1854[/B] Tint: oz. 348 oz. B - 1 6 C - 0 79 F - 0 22
To make an equivalent of an Elektra™ mix (which is what you are doing), I would recommend making C&S™ Ultra and then darkening it with the N6 paint. I believe the C&S™ Ultra base tint formula to use with Behr paint is V - 5/384 oz., although it seems that Behr may have changed the names of their tints so it could be something other than V which is or was their symbol for the tint color Magenta. The base color you want for making C&S™ Ultra using Behr paint is 5/384 oz. of Magenta tint added to a QUART of #1850 (or equivalent).
