I found a very cool color site. It gives different values, coordinates,etc... most of which I don't understand yet! It also gives matching colors in numerous brands.
Here is the page I found when I did a search for the color I was interested in-

WOW! I only glanced for a few seconds, but it appears you've hit the mother lode of color sites. It is definitely bookmark worthy. Great find. THANKS!

You might also try colorcharts.org, Jeanie.

I am having difficulty getting into colorcharts.org

I've frequented the site numerous times and found it very helpful. Anyone have a similiar site? Or different web address?

Colorcharts.org is no longer a free resource. You can access the color matching feature by buying annual access to the CBN, Color by Numbers, virtual painting software.

Encolorpedia.com is an awesome resource. If you have any questions about all the numbers or specific color order systems, I might be able to help.


Later,

Wow- that's great. Thanks for sharing. One of my all time favorites is still http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/index.aspx. I love seeing what is trending and using their free resources to get ideas.

That is fantastic! It gives you so much info. It is what my paint store would use to tell me if a particular paint color had red, etc and what the lighter and darker versions are and much much more. Thanks for sharing.
