Paint color from IPad

krissie55November 1, 2012

Is it possible for a paint reader machine to pick up color from an I-Pad?

I found a red door on the internet I fell in love with and want to have paint mixed that color. MY monitor shows the color I want. Not sure what another monitor would show even on an I-Pad.

I have paint sample of the actual paint used on the internet door, however, it is too dark, not color on my monitor. The paint is made in Canada and the Mfgr. was kind enough to send me samples.

I would go to a better paint store and not Lowe's or Home Depot in hopes their paint reader would be better quality.

I doubt it...

I'd go by eye...if you're not sure, go to a reliable paint store and ask fr help...the guys at our local ( not big box) store are excellent at matching colors.
