Ok I order two gallons of a water base pigment in a bm Color. We sprayed the face frames first and then the doors. I finished the face frames and installed them on the boxes. I sill had one more coat to go on the doors but we needed to get the boxes in. So I had to go into the second gallon to finish the doors and when we hung the door the color was wrong. I usually mix paints together when getting 3 or more gallons just to make sure everything matches but with 2 I think they could get it right. So they have tried 3 times so far to match them an still can't do it. Today I gave them the face frame and said just match this an they called an said the best they can do is a stock white because that's as close as they can get it. Now I tried a stock white over the color that was to dark an it's still to dark . I only did one coat so I was wondering if another coat would change the color to match the frames. Or can I go over this finish with another companies finish. The finish on there is Chem Craft so I guess even the finishing suppliers can't find good help.
You kinda answered your own Question/Statement.
Agree with Shane.
Asked and answered in the first sentence.
And, that is why some shops are equipped to mix their own colors.
Maybe time to invest!
Yea I agree, but I,decided to go to an old time paint store we have near the shop and in 5 min he had it matched. No computers or nothing just go to show you if you know your job your damm good at it.
to be totally honest I have dealt with smaller paint shops on and off throughout my years...mainly because a job specs that brand of finish. I always have to make sure I get more pigment than ill ever use, cause they have issues with rematching batches.
Sherwin is the only supplier that has ever been reliable in this regard. and ill gallon these guys to death. better pricing, better tech support..but they are slow (accurate tho) and they have terrible customer service
