Autumn foliage

Autumn has turned the forest into a paradise of colors. Stray rays of sunlight are penetrating the dense tree crown, casting a mystical light on the dark red leaves that are swirling around. They are dancing to the music of the forest, to the rustling of the bushes, to the babbling of a brook. The deep red color of autumn foliage gives you a feeling of warmth and power. You absorb it with every fiber of your body, trying to memorize and preserve every detail to dispel the short grey days that are yet to come.

The PWC (Pigment Weight Concentration) in the dry film is indicated for each styling

PWC = p / (p + b)

p = total weight pigments (solid)

b = weight binder (solid)

In the dry state: Pigment / binder ratio = (Σ Pigment) / (Total solid content (wet form) – (Σ Pigment)) 


Feasibility for on-line application

The stylings in our color inspirations are intended to demonstrate future effect color directions and possibilities. Although we have tried to make the formulations as realistic as possible, we cannot guarantee their full feasibility for on-line application. A certain degree of modification and fine tuning will probably be necessary.
