    Color Mixing Tools includes 3 tools:
    1. Color2Drop (a program to convert RGB, Lab or Munsell HVC color coordinates into paint mixing recipes)
    2. Drop2Color (a program to visualize the color of mixed paint recipes)
    3. RS2Color (a program to visualize the color of reflectance spectra)
    http://zsolt-kovacs.unibs.it/colormixingtools


    Reading this I see E'tac is here as well:
    • EFX500 by E'TAC (all colors: EFX 501-513 (2007) + 12 colors EFX HS (2009)) Some bases have changed color and formulation over time: these bases can not be mixed correctly anymore.
    1. EFX500 by E'Tac - 25 spectra calculated at maximum saturation when the paint is used transparently
    Also Schmincke, Golden and others.

    There is also web and mobile version. You can find createx on mobile version and Vallejo.

    Web version:
    https://sensuallogic.com/paintmaker

    you can put picture on that site and then click on the color which is of your interest and you get recipe for that color. I was playing around with it for few minutes without being a member. I didn't need to use calculate recipes, cause as soon I clicked on color on the picture I got results in parts.

    Never knew these existed. I'm trying to make a cage cover for my grandson's dog, just cutting out all the panels from canvas ready to sew together, so I will check the links out later. I don't know if I will ever use any of them but will take a look out of interest.

    Zsolt was the guy who did all the mods, coatings and stuff to Marissa's airbrushes, he is talented.

    I have used this tool in the past and it does work but I found it to much hassle counting the drops and I didnt bother to put it on my new computer

    It looks complicated at first glance, but if it helps cut down on some of the guess work when colour matching it would be well worth getting to grips with. It’s great that you can change the paint manufacturer, that’s a really bonus.

    there is a downside to https://sensuallogic.com/paintmaker . . . you get 50 bonus credits when you create an account, which allows you to get 'recipes' for you colour, once you run out of the bonus credits you need to buy more :(
    Shame, I was excited that it had the Createx listed,

    I was making recipes without credits. All you need is parts. And this is for free. At least on my end...

    Screenshot_2020-10-20 PaintMaker - SensualLogic.png

    3 parts = 3 drops
    1 part = 1 drop

    As soon you click on the picture you get parts. Or mouse scroll on picture to zoom.

    edit: oh, I just realized it took one credit from me for recipe for white and I don't have account. -.-
