Hello... I am new to this forum but I used to post on the old one(?) a couple of years ago. Anyway, I have always used powdered pigments (Cheng first, then B&J) but I am interested in liquid color as a more versatile, economical approach. I like to work with a limited color palette of grays and earth tones, but there is always a client that wants something wild (lime green, purple, etc)
Does anyone out use a CMYK scale with any success? I'd like to know more...

I have been using there liquid colors, I am quite happy with them. I like the idea of mixing the base colors and getting all the color combinations of the Benjamin Moore color wheel.

Give them a call.

I have been in touch with blueconcrete, as they were my main powdered pigment supply, and I did use there liquid yellow before. I thought that their black oxide and carbon black powders were outstanding for being able to obtain both warm and cool shades of grays. I guess with CYMK you could obtain infinite color. Just curious how difficult it is to get it right.
