Virtual Paint Mixer from GOLDEN Acrylics
Unique online tool allows artists to experiment with color mixing — without wasting any paint!
GOLDEN Artist Colors Introduces Virtual Paint Mixer
Mixing paint with control and getting predictable results is a skill that takes years to master. It also requires a lot of paint. Compounding the challenges of time and expense is the plethora of information, color theories and perspectives that can be more difficult to navigate than the skill itself. GOLDEN Artist Colors has cut through this fog with their Virtual Paint Mixer, a unique, fun, online tool for color exploration. With it artists can discover new color possibilities and personalize color choices, making their palette unique!
Best of all it is FREE! Registered users can print, e-mail, share on Facebook and save formula “reports” with color information to guide purchases and direct them to nearby retailers. The mixer allows artists to choose palettes from the GOLDEN Heavy Body Acrylics, GOLDEN Fluid Acrylics, and GOLDEN OPEN Acrylics product lines as well as from our Color Mixing Sets.
Through exploration and play, artists can mix countless paint colors, developing a feel for correct proportions and the best colors to use. Photos can be uploaded and sampled to match colors and create palettes. The program accounts for the physical characteristics within GOLDEN acrylic paints so artists can get closer to the colors they want faster than ever before, saving time, frustration and paint.
This tool works with any browser on a Mac, PC, iPad or Android device. The interface also works on touch screens so artists can use it on tablets as they paint. Artists who’ve already tried the GOLDEN Virtual Paint Mixer shared these thoughts:
- “The photo application is like a treasure hunt of color.”
- “I could play all day!”
- “This gives me an opportunity to find and share MY color.”
- “I can’t wait to expand my palette.”
- “I can use this to teach color mixing with my students.”
- “This will make me a better painter.”
