Another great article for beginners and the more experienced alike.
Information like this will make the Article Library a fantastic resource for all.

Nice one Rob

Nice addition to decorate a painting area with! Very helpful, and this new layout makes it excellent!

Really nice article, it's nice to know you don't have to buy a whole new paintpot if you only need a certain colour only once for a small area...

Great help Temet! Thanks!

:wink: Isc.

Great article Temet, very useful.

You should take a look at the regal blue though.
11 chaos black to 2 Enchanted blue for Regal blue
and
4 chaos black to 5 Enchanted blue for the darker Midnight blue.
(Midnight blue is darker than Regal blue I think).
its probably 1 chaos black to 2 Enchanted blue, or something like that.

Great article, it obviously took a lot of work. As well as the Midnight Blue issue, you have Dark Flesh and Scab Red as the same thing, and Terracotta with more red in it than Scab Red.

Thanks for the comments guys :D

As for the mistakes.... I dont know how they occured as I copied the charts from the one already on here... so that means those mistakes have been there for 1 year and not been noticed ;)

I was also emailed and noticed while I was putting it in that Rotting Flesh should be more than yellow and white.....

I will look into it when I have a moment.

I love the simplicity of the idea of this article and have actually used some of the formulae when I was desperate for some different greens once and I can vouch for them, they work a treat!

Maybe we'll see Temet Nosce's own range of paints one day!

Great article all I was wondering about was with the ones where the numbers get drastically high like 56 and 156 ( ithink that's them) then surely if you scaled all the numbers down you'd get the same colour?

I get what you mean Blue Nazgul but if you look to get Kommado Khaki you will need 156 Yellow, but only 1 Black.
Temet has done it so you can use what ever measurements you like (you could buy 156 pots of Yellow to make an obscene amount of Khaki), it is just the ratios he has shown.

I found it very useful, and I guess others will, especially when trying to mix blends, knowing how much each colour is made from can allow you to build a more gentle transition between colour.
Shame I can't paint good enought to show it.

I've just started to mix my own paints, more out of curiosity than necessity, and I've found this article to be very informative as well as helpful.

Thank you.

Hi There
Not a stupid question at all, I was wondering the same thing not too long ago cause there were a couple of colors I wanted to mix up that I use alot of but also wanted to make sure they would store well over time. I can safely say that as long as the bottle you use to hold the mixed paint in you will be fine, I have mixed several different colors now and they have been great for over a month now. So go ahead,,, Mix,,Enjoy,, and be happy about the extra $$ you will be saving not having torun to the store to buy GW paints that are soooo overpriced its not even funny anymore.
Thanks: Meridian

Its good to see the older articles being visited by our new members and feedback being given where its due.

it's well thought making every colour out of 5..
but it's not going to help me, look what you need for khaki :P
it's not helping me out but this is a very good idea ;)

good luck with your 5 colours :)

oh and merry x-mas everybody *<|:)

This is my all-time favourite hobby article, cause not only does it help to mix paints you don't have, but it's also great to see what colour you need to mix in to create good smooth highlights.
