why shade different in gallon size & 5 gallon paint..??
I got a 5 gallon bucket of a color code of paint at a local chain store. I needed a bit more so ordered a gallon can of the same color code but when I began applying it, I could see the shade was a bit darker than the same paint & color code of the 5 gallon bucket .. what a mess now to repaint it all so it matches! Any idea why this same color code (it was not matched by the light 'thing-a-ma-jig'... I have found fault with that method of matching!) but by the color code)wasn't an exact match ... was it the fault of the person who mixed it for me? Should the amount- 5 allon vs. one gallon size make a difference assuming it was mixed sufficiently?
BTW: the color was a very light beige satin finish.
