Stealing Color

Purpose

To derive extensive and specific color palettes from images for use in painting applications.

This mini-utility is a work in progress and makes temporary use of "simple CMYK" color conversion.

Choose Paint

Amount of Paint per Color

estimate in grams - numbers only please
Recommendation: For Tempera and Artists Acrylic paints, 30 grams will yield about 1 ounce.
Recommendation: For Acrylic Latex paints, 300 grams will yield about 1.5 cups (roughly).
Recommendation: Add a slight bit extra of the dominant color you are trying to mix (just a little). For example, if the color is a little light, add a bit more white, if it's dark, less white. If it's kind of bluish, add a little more blue.
