B.M. Powell Buff too yellow???

w8ncNovember 15, 2011

Does anyone here have the formula for Powell Buff. I asked the store to mix at 75% but it looks very yellow on the wall.I thought it would look more like "beigey" but it doesn't. The formula on the can reads:

Y3 2x 5.7500

S1 0x 6.3750

R2 0x 0.7500

R1 0x 6.7500

Thanks for any help.

I can't help you with the formula, but what are you trying to do? I believe that our res.expert on paint formulas, funcolors, has said that the formula is pretty much meaningless to the average person. If you are trying to fix the paint, find a color you like and ask the mixologist if he or she can get your can of paint to that color.
