    Anybody have a clue why is color darker in cups, bottles then when it's sprayed? I am just wondering what would be the reason for that.

    most colors will not reach max saturation with one or two layers the color you see in the bottle or cup is the pigment color and the paint will never go darker than the color you see but it will need many layers to reach that color

    Exactly as Ron said. Look how dark a true Candy paint is in the bottle, but when it’s sprayed it takes a whole lot of layers to get as dark.
