Why is the formula for my quart tester not close to the gallon?
I had decided on SW Blonde and Ivoire for most of my house. Got the quart testers and painted some samples downstairs.
My painter came and did the master bedroom in a combo of those two. I then started wondering if the Blonde was going to be too light for the 2story family room with a southwest exposure. I looked at the formula on the cans. The Blonde quart was the same base as the gallon and a mixture of raw umber, new red and deep gold. The gallon was a mix of black, maroon and deep gold.
What's up with that or is it just a stupid consumer(me)not understanding the procedure?
