In light ( pun intended) of a recent post, I would suggest anyone in a Beta phase be advised;
The formula should be followed all the ingredients are the same however it would seem a RGB approach to the reflective tints is wrong. I was guessing that a few posts back and thought we should go the cmyk route.
This seems to be the way to go....however all I know is we should be trying Ceramcoat pigments first and foremost...
The reason I believe this to be true is, if you take a look on page 8 of the "the effort" thread the pic with the creature in it shows a non illuminated border...
That color if sampled just happens to be very close to the mixing of CMY in a theoretical "photoshop" sense....
They have some transparent tints, that might help in keeping the gain up..
They also favor nicely to referenced pic and cmyk codes
2130 Sweetheart Blush
2038 Ultra Blue
Your call is as good as mine as far as transparency...but maybe?
Here is a link for some dirt cheap pricing on Ceramcoat:http://www.hofcraft.com/delta2ozsale.htm
.98 for 2 ounces...most colors..
Hope it does not offend, AVS doesn't sell craft paint....but maybe they should
Now it would also seem to me the yellow component would need the help of a darker unit of yellow to preclude it from directly reflecting ambient...just a guess...
Worse case scenario you up your possibilities of combos, by purchasing 10 dollars in new paint .
If you look at the other thread... "the effort cont" you will see a pic of the ingredients used currently...you could use it as a shopping list for the variety of the CM pigments...how many in the relative size bottle are produced?
MissMan... did not want to post it here out of respect, I appreciate that...but it does seem to focus the cause... and any help is what this forum is all about, thanks.
