Main Steps Explained

1 What colours are in the colour you want to mix?

Do you see yellows, greens, a hint of blue? Red?

2 Find the closest ones we have, add a brush of each to the glass

3 Slowly add a little of each to see whee it takes you

4 Test a bit on the colour you are trying to match

There are only 3 colours Yellow, Red, Blue plus two tints Black and White

You gotta take a real good look and think which colours you can see in the colour you are trying to match, then work out which one there is the most of.

Put a bit of this one on the glass

Then drop by drop add the other colours ... mixing all the time!

once you have the colour add a drop at a time of black or white to get the correct shade.

Now paint some on and let it dry, once dry it may be a bit wrong ... have a think which way it went and adjust your mix

Good luck

Recipes

Veneer colour

Use foam to dab on a yellow brown of 107+149, wait a minute or so then dab on 106.

So you can sort of see that yellow and red make the oranges and then a touch of blue and you go to brown, then you need to adjust the yellow/red to get the right brown. then also a touch of black/white to get the right "darkness"
