How do I match paint to PANTONE Colors?
A local paint supplier or online paint vendor can help you to obtain paint colors that match either the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors colors or Pantone Matching System colors.
Pantone Matching System colors, which are produced with printing ink on paper, can be challenging to match in paints. If you bring a sample of a Pantone Matching System color, i.e., PANTONE 185 C for example, to a paint vendor and they try to measure the color, the light source used will penetrate the ink film and reflect from the substrate, which leads to inaccurate color matching. It is probably easiest to visually compare the sample to a paint chart under controlled lighting and choose the closest applicable color.
The Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors paper-based products are produced with nitrocellulose coating on paper, which is the same process used to develop paint charts. If you have the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors Color Guide, or a sample chip from the Pantone Fashion, Home + Interiors Color Specifier, your paint vendor should be able to successfully computer-match the color with a high degree of accuracy.
