All these paints them can be mixed to obtain new "custom" colors, or add white getting colors pastels, i.e., colors of the same range or tone, but more clear.

Water paintings, whether they are acrylic or vinyl used to paint walls also come in colors like cement, tiles, ochre, colonial, etc. Varnishes are also dyed with colours that tone to the wood where they are applied, but without covering it entirely revealing the original veins, these colors are mahogany, cedar, walnut, oak, or the name of wood that mimic.

Also many paint or paint stores have machines to prepare colors according to an extensive menu with thousands of ringtones to choose: the tintometric system. A convenient option for the preparation of the colors of our House, but surely with a higher cost.

How To Dye a White Paint With Entonadores

Usually to dye a painting at home entonadores are used or universal dyes that to learn how to use them are going to pose a practical situation:
Suppose you have 10 liters of acrylic latex paint a couple of rooms in house. And you want to achieve a sky blue color. According to interior latex colour chart will need 15cc of blue and violet 15cc for one liter. What we can translate in 150 and 150 respectively for a tin of 10 lts.

In a different container you separate one liter of this painting and add the specified amount of tuning blue and violet (in this case the 150cc each). You can measure the quantities with a disposable syringe.

Stir until a uniform strong blue color, then painting you add it to the container of 10 litres with white paint, and mixtures with a table or revolvedor of wood with circular movements and up and down.

This container is used to achieve a complete dissolution of the tuning in the paint without leaving remains solid. With the color already prepared are ready for paint. If it is necessary to add 5% to 10% of the required diluent, in this case water. This same procedure is used for oil as the synthetic enamel paints.

A method that many painters used is the adding the required amount of dye to the total of the painting that will be used. You can do this if you are sure that the tuning is of good quality. Make sure you stir paint well, get stress at the bottom of the cube often where traces of the dye. I recommend the first way.
