Discover our formulation of the month for October 2021

Pumpkin Season

This month’s warm uplifting fall color represents the season of autumn and Halloween. The color reminds you of pumpkins, harvest festivals, fall foliage, and candle flames. Jack-o-lanterns in the yard and the creepy costume announces the spookiest time of the year. 

Illuminate the light and warmth in the darkness with our deep orange formulation of the month.

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

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.
