Re-tinting already mixed color

jockewingMarch 26, 2009

I just recently had SW tint some Cashmere low lustre with a match of BM's Imperial Gray. This is the third color down on the Night Mist/Gray Wisp/Raindance strip (the one that matches Restoration Hardware Silver Sage). I had gotten a sample of Raindance before and thought the color was perfect for my bath. However I knew that paint colors slightly darken when you get them in matte or low sheens. I thought Raindance might go too dark in a low lustre, so I got my gallon mixed in the next color up, Imperial Gray.

Now, I think the Imperial Gray might be too light, and I think I would prefer Raindance. I have only used a couple of brush-fulls out of the fresh paint can (virtually nothing), so could I bring it back to the store and get them to add the extra tint to make it a match of Raindance? I could live with the Imperial Gray, but I would really prefer Raindance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The color is probably being custom matched, so it is likely that they can custom match the paint to the darker color.
