I need a dark Green

Post by Roadking41a on March 15th 2012, 11:12 pm

I went to Lowes and looked at Rustoleum Hunter Green. But it wasn't dark enough. Will painting a black base make it darker,or do I need to mix in some black to get the dark green I want? I need a green that is so dark that it looks black depending on the light.

Im not 100% sure, but i don't think you get a different result from using a dark base. This used to be the case with older paint, but as i said i don't think so with rusto.
Your best option would be to custom tint it yourself, but i think its hard to get the right color. Hopefully some of the pros here will chime in Smile

Mix in black in small increment's until you get the desired color.
