Paint at half-strength - What does this mean?
I have seen mentioned here the idea of using paint at half-strength (I hope I have the term right) and am wondering what does that mean exactly?
We have just painted much of our downstairs in BM Pittsfield Buff and I like it, but it looks too intense in the stairwell which goes up to a skylight. Would the same color at half-strength work?
And what do I ask for at my local Ace Hardware? Will they know what this means?
Or if you have suggestions for a neutral that will work with Pitt Buff, that would be good to hear too.
Many thanks for any help you can provide. I've been up to my elbows in paint this week.
