Looking for a mass market wall paint in true gray. 50% pure white, 50% true black. No cyan, magenta or yellow. B.M., S.W., Muralo, or Pratt & Lambert.
But Charles if you want 50% pure white and 50% true black why don't you just mix it yourself?
Or go to a Benjamin Moore paint store and read the colors listed to create the grays they sell.
Actually I did not know there was any such thing as a pure white or a true black. Wouldn't that be subjective?
It has been explained to me by both Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore that the "pure black" they use is to tint other colors and is a more transluscent tinting paint than what you would use for wall covering. This means that the blacks they market for instance B.M. Tricorn Black is a dark, but not black, base with black and other colors in it to appear black.
If you were to buy black wall paint and mix white into it you would wind up with a dark greyish color pigmented with green, or blue, or purple because of the base paint . It seems from all my research there is no such thing as "gray scale" gray like in artists oils or acrylics.
That is interesting. How 'bout using artists acrylics? Would it be cost prohibitive? Seems A.C. Moore often has sales.
