Many publishers do not include brand names of colors in their books since it can be considered to be an endorsement of one maker's product over all others. For this reason, and to be helpful to those wanting to use the exact colors in the recipe mixes, I created the following charts. They show all of the paint colors, makers brand names, Color Index Names and Color Index Numbers I used in the making of my series of "Color Mixing Recipe" Books..

Master Paint Color List For All Paint Colors Listed in:

CRC2 - Color Mixing Recipes for Oil and Acrylic
CRC3 - Color Mixing Recipes for Portraits
CRC4 - Color Mixing Recipes for Watercolor
CRC5 - Color Mixing Recipes for Landscape
CRC 101 - 1500 Color Mixing Recipes

Including: Manufacturers, Paint Color Names, Paint Color Index Names & Paint Color Index Numbers
