Wall Paints -- Water-based

Color chart for natural pigmented wall paints

The basic AURO wall paint pigments or color concentrates Nos. 330-10 to 330-99 are all available. The other color tones are ideas for self-mixing. Tones are achieved either by lightening with white. All color concentrates can be freely mixed with each other and with the basic white wall paint in any combination. The pure color concentrates may be used as a wall paint by itself if desired. The mixing ratio is metric and given in liquid percentage (1 L = 1000 ml):

1 teaspoon (tsp.) equals approx. 5 ml and will make the measuring easy.

For example if you like and want the 4th color in the fourth row showing a ratio of 1% blue you would add 20 teaspoons (100 ml = 5 ml x 20) of 330-50 pigment into a 10 liter container of the basic white paint.


Mix both the white paint and pigment very well before adding them together - we don't use any homogenizers and the oils and pigments tend to settle.

A natural wet paint looks darker or more intense than when it has dried.

Use less pigment than you want, mix up with the white paint, paint about a square yard onto wall or a smaller sample on white paper, and in this case use hairdryer to speed up drying time. Then you can see and experience the final color tone.

If you start out and know that you will have to use two coats (e.g. on new sheet-rock, don't forget the primer) you can paint the first coat in the color tone you think you like; a whole room or wall always looks and feels different than a small color swatch. For the second coat you can then adjust the color. Always take notes about your mixing samples, otherwise you have mixed the most beautiful color but can't duplicate it because you have no idea what you mixed together.

Good luck in your creativity; you will do fine.
