Homestead House does its best to display accurate colors online, but the however on-screen colour representations vary from actual paint colours. It is simply a computer representation of the paint colour to help give you an idea of the colour. Every single computer monitor will display these colors differently.
** Although we do our best to ensure exact colour matching, there may be slight batch variations over time due to pigments changing and the aging of the paint. Be sure to mix several cans of paint together of the same colour to ensure that any batch variations are nullified. Also, it is always a good idea to keep a small can of paint used for future touch ups to ensure that you have the exact same colour.
