Re: Genuine Van Dyke Brown (NBr 8)

How do you all make these nice clean tint bars? Lay a strip of white down just to the right of your color you're testing and then work lesser amounts of the color into it as you move right?

The method I eventually settled on was to do all of the mixing off to the side. I place a small blob of the paint being tested with a palette knife and then next to it what looks like an equal amount of white before mixing them. Then repeat that for the next tint in a separate mix, except getting the colored paint from the color that was just mixed. The palette knife should be wiped often to keep the amounts equal. Then after that three tint mixes are just laid down next to each other in the clean area.

I went ahead and ordered the Williamsburg Van Dyke. They say at least 99% NBr8.
