Tinting Charge for Venetian Plaster and Lime Paint Orders

ANY changes to the approved formula must be approved by the customer with a new sample before orders are mixed

Once colors are approved by the customer, there is a tint & handling charge for future orders of that color.

Gallon or smaller container - $25 per container tinting fee

Four and Five-gallon pails - $100 per container tinting fee

Additional charge for dark colors (deep tones) Tint volume greater than 2.5 ounces per gallon = $15 per ounce

Paint Tinting

Some of the paints we sell are only available in the colors provided by the manufacturer. If we do not have a formula for your color, custom tinting charges will apply.

Some products we do not tint. We sell colorants for that purpose.

Primer Tinting

Despite the fact that primer is not always recommended by paint manufacturers, we take a dim view of omitting primer.

Tinting primer-1/2 paint formula: $10.00/container; tint volume exceeding 2.5 ounces per gallon = $15.00 per ounce of tint

Custom tinting charges apply for custom primer colors

Turnaround: Two full day for samples; depending on the queue

We need time to provide a superb color match. We observe and make small incremental adjustments until we believe you will be satisfied with the results.

Orders: Turnaround-mutually agreed upon terms when the order is placed

Rush Orders are subject to an additional charge by mutual agreement.

Please note: All approval samples and orders must be paid in advance.

We reserve the right to charge for additional liters when the approval sample is picked up or delivered. A good color match may require a new liter since color cannot be backed out of the mix.

Tinted Products are not returnable. We also can not tint products that we do not sell.

Prices effective November 1, 2019 - Prices and policy subject to change at any time.
