Select Your Paint Colours from Your Mobile with These Great Apps!March 10, 2017
Do you need to choose some paint? Did you know there’s now an alternative to going through swatches of colours at the shop?
Thanks to the wonders of technology, you can now select your paint shades – and plan a decorating project – on your mobile phone!
Here are two great apps for the paint ranges stocked at TBS.
COLOUR MATE, from Leyland / Johnstone’s, is a free download for Android, iPhone and iPad.
It gives you easy access to over 1600 colours from the Johnstone’s Trade fan deck, as well as the tools to create pallets of colour for each project. Once a colour has been selected, you are presented with its key information, such as its Light Reflective Value.
Now get this: simply photograph any object with your phone and the app will then match it to the nearest colour in the Johnstone’s range.
You can find out more about the Colour Mate app via this link .
LET’S COLOUR, from Dulux, is a free download for Android, iPhone and iPad.
It offers the same features as Colour Mate, including matching a photograph to a named shade. In addition, you have access to all the ready mix colours in the Dulux range, and there are Masterclasses where you can learn how to see through a paint project using Let’s Colour.
