I am now touching up interior woodwork in my kitchen. Finding a small amount of cream gloss paint has been more than difficult. The hardware shop had one litre tins, but would not sell me a small amount of cream. They mix paint themselves. I bought a 250ml tin of magnolia, hoping it might blend in, but it looks white against the cream. After a lot of searching and phoning around, I managed to get another small tin of cream, but it is very light in colour, and not a lot darker than the magnolia.
So, I am wondering if anyone has any ideas. There are sample pots of various colours on Amazon, but they are emulsion. What I wonder is, if I can find a yellow, or a brown sample pot of emulsion can I mix the two together, to get a creamier colour. Would orange juice curdle the gloss?
If you know the maker and name of a colour the shops will mix it, even if it is no longer sold. Also if you have a sample of the colour, maybe from one of those charts they give out.
I got Rose White for my hall and I have a list of all the colours used through the house in case I want a quick 1 coat job.
i wonder if the cream has darkened with age, or even looks paler wet than dry.
I wouldn't try orange juice. No idea about emulsion, sounds more trouble /expense than doing the wall.

Thanks, Mo. Well, I ordered some yellow paint, which I hope to mix with the so called cream, to get somewhere near the required shade. Unlike the first two tins, it is taking several days to arrive, but should be here tomorrow.
