However, if you have a specific effect that you need to re-create, we are ready to help by providing either a nearest from our library of over 30,000 colours, or by carrying out a colourmatch to a sample you provide.

Please complete the Colour Match form and send it to us online, or print off and post in with your sample. Alternatively, call the Technical Department for advice.
