Why extra special, I would have thought paint is paint no matter where sprayed?

Magic mushroom really does seem to change loads! Glad I picked it though.

My other choice was Britannia Blue, but that seems to brighten up considerably in sunlight. Were it a darker shade like a midnight blue, it would have been a close run thing!

Excellent work, Steve ! (y)

If you want to get the colors as neutral as possible, and if you know a photography enthusiast or a studio, ask them to take some pictures with a (or with some) flashlight/s. That's the only defined source of light which is half way controllable at about 5500K. A modern camera will adjust to 5500K if a flash is attached.

And then, a grey-card (photographic equipment for a a few dollars) should be photographed together with any sample. Than, any user can use this card on the picture as a reference in his photo viewer (which should allow to adjust color to the reference).

There are of course more hurdles to master before the viewer gets a neutral impression (monitor setting and quality ...), but with a controlled first step you have a good start. This is in fact something which Ineos should do, as they sell their cars via Internet ...

Wow! Now it's getting technical, photo-technical!

What is this color next to Mushroom? Seems to be a new one.
