"Red and Yellow and Pink and Green...

...purple and orange and blue!
I can sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow,
sing a rainbow too!

Listen with your eyes..."

Err...sorry - too much "Captain Noah" as a kid...

Anyway, it was time to decide which color to paint the latest project (full post coming soon) and once again the milk paint color sticks proved their worth. I just selected the options from the "oiled" sticks, and held them up against the wall in the future home of the project:

The winner is - "red". Which actually looks kind of burgundy in this light. Of course, that's the point of selecting the color under the actual lighting conditions.

Now, where am I supposed to send this picture?

Oh Yeah!

"Send your pictures to Dear Old Captain Noah..."


  1. What's even better is that this is the actual paint on the stick, rather than color tags that seem to be just a little off when you compare them to the painted product.

  2. Torch02 - Yes, I agree. I've found these to be very accurate, and they also give you the texture of the paint, which also subtly changes the way the color is perceived by the eye.
