Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Nice Color Guide Bought this color mixing guide a few weeks ago. I always make my own color recipes, but thought I would give this a try. Very handy to have. Happy that I bought it.

Extra Content

Read from the Book

USING THE COLOR INDEXES At the end of this book you will find three separate indexes. The Color Guidance Index includes all recipes for the Oil & Acrylic and Watercolor sections. Unless otherwise noted, the recipe number is the same in both the Oil & Acrylic and Watercolor sections. To find the recipe you need, simply look in the indexes for the subject you want to paint (e.g., “Tomato, Red”). Find the subject’s recipe number in the appropriate section. Note that some index entries list page numbers instead of, or in addition to, recipe numbers.
