    Question for the Paint guys

     



    With any luck I should be ready to paint my bed this weekend. I'm going to be using Chroma One SS urethane.

    Haven't picked up the paint yet, will probably do that wends. When I was at the paint store last week I asked if they made any pre-mix whites in Chroma 1 and was told no basicallly they have to add a couple of tints to any white (I've watched them mix it a couple of tmes).

    That got me wondering if just the base paint they mix the tints in could be used straight and if it wouldn't be me a brighter white (and something very easy to match if I ever have to).

    Anyone ever try this before?

    I use a base mixing white from R&M, for graphics. Your store should be able to mix it without the tints & toners...no prob. Just wear sunglasses when you wash it! :-)

    Thanks Jay

    "....Just wear sunglasses when you wash it!....." sounds like what I'm after.
