As I was just saying in another thread, there are some really bizarre suggestions in this that I can see wouldn't work without even trying them - 14 parts Zinc White to mix VIRIDIAN??? Quinacridone Red to match Vermillion? Not in my universe it doesn't!

But it is interesting to look at all the same and I can see how the suggestion for some of the colours might work well. Worth downloading, even if only for a chuckle. :D

StarGate,

Thank you for posting the chart. It is a great starting point for getting as close to "classic" color as possible with the medium. And it is not just the colors that are used, it is how the colors are used that can make the difference.
