How to get this color Green ?

12 posts in this topic

Looks like a greyish green, or a greenish grey. I'd start with basic trans green, and add trans grey until I got the shade I wanted.

It's bit hard to see the colour (pic size), but I think I would mix a dull green with a little black and thin it down (add some matte base to bind it), and then spray several layers, until you get the colours you want, or as others have said, maybe mix 'Tamiya Opaque', smoke and green, which may also take a few coats- all this over maybe a dull cream/eggshell base. Always sounds easy?????????????????pete

This is just a guesstimate but try 4 parts forest green to one part opaque gray. In my head this seems about right. I mix paints on a daily basis and that's about as close as I can suggest without actually doing it.

Hope it helps.

Watermelon w/black added-put a smear on white paper and carefully add additional black until it matches.

Snax, I did not have a chance to try.

I assume you're painting hardbaits. When you lightly shoot black over the watermelon(top and SLIGHTLY over the side) it darkens the watermelon.I used to make my own watermelon paint color for years w vinyl paints. I never saved the formula.It did have lime green,black and brown in it
