The Quest for the Perfect Pink

I've had this gallon of paint for a long time. I thought I could use it for my dollhouse but it is not quite the right pink.


The little bowl on the right is a "custom" mix that I whipped up. I kept adding paint but never did get the color I wanted. Guess I'll start over or go buy more paint?


I'm looking for a "tropical" pink just like this! There is a BM dealer not far from me too! I wonder if a couple of their little sample jars would be enough to paint my house?


In my quest for all things pink I also found this little book. I think I'll make a mini one...


Now, IF I had a million dollars, I would buy these cottages in Sebastian Florida! 18 of them to be exact! Isn't this one just too cute!


Anyone what to join me in an investment venture?!

Blessings,
Kathi

I think the tropical pink you are looking for has a hint of yellow in it. While I am all for using up what I have on hand, I hate to settle for something that isn't just right...especially when it is such a "big" thing. Instead of spending time trying to mix a custom color (especially when you KNOW where the right color is), I'd visit the paint store in question. I don't know how big those paint sample cans are but I's guess a pint of paint should be enough for that house.

Love those beach cottages!

That flamingo book will be so wonderful in mini!! I really need to learn how to make mini books-- I love them so much!
Good luck with your pink paint hunt- I know you'll find the perfect pink for your little beach house!
Hugs,

Try the pink paint with a drop of red on a mixing board. Then something dark pink. You can shorest white mix when it is dark. success!

To mix a color is difficult and needs theory and experiences.
This pink needs some yellow, thats right.
To make a pink like the flower or the Flamingo house you need white, a lot, red, a piece, and yellow.

I was all set to post my "expert" opinion that what you needed was some yellow, but I was obviously beaten to the punch -- not once, but twice! It is actually a coral color you are looking for.

Thanks everyone! I added some red and yellow and came really close to the color I wanted. When the sun comes up I'll post a photo of "my" pink. LOL
