Thumbs up Acrylic and Oil Mixing Guide

During my latest visit to the art/stationary store, I picked up a free copy of a mixing guide by Liquitex titled "How to Mix & Use color.

The guide includes an acrylic and oil mixing guide, a value finder card, a Liquitex color chart and interesting essays on value, color relationships, and technical information. It has more valuable information then many books on the subject.

Free!!?? I had to pay something like $10 for mine at Michaels two years ago.

It is a nice mixing guide although it was designed
many years ago. I wish other paint manufacturers would have guides like this.

I was surprised that it was free also.

A few months ago in a thread you recommended that Einon pick up a color chart by Golden. I believe Einon payed $1 for one in England.

Golden will mail anyone (not sure about outside the US) a free hand painted color chart and a lot of additional information about their products and their use. (Thanks Domer)

The packet is chock full of info and the color chart, as both you & Einon claimed, is valuable. (Especially to Golden, one look and I was ordering some of those wonderful colors).

You can order through this site http://www.goldenpaints.com/hand.htm

Coincidentally, Patrick and I were talking about this book only recently. As you say it has a very useful overview of colour and the colour table, with its explanation of the relationship of one colour to the next, make it extremely useful pracitally and to the best of my knowledge this principle is not published anywhere else.

I had to pay for mine too, interesting that they're giving it away now, everyone should run out and get a copy!

Ops!

Sorry Sadgylee, I was thinking of Golden paints. I believe that Liquitex does make oils. Why else would they produce a guide including them? Duh!

Islandwoman,

Liquitex and Golden does not produce oil paints.

In 2002, when that post was made, Liquitex still produced a line of oils in addition to their acrylics

Re: Acrylic and Oil Mixing Guide

Since I now live in the country and art stores not close by, I order my material on-line from a supplier in Canada.

I just went on Golden site, did a search for Color Guide and got a Color Mixing Guide (printer friendly version).

Printing it as I type this.
