How do you use Proceed products? Why?

A couple of my customers asked me if I could make PROCEED’s Metallic Texture in red so I made one that I liked. When Dawn Whitley, owner of Dream Rooms, asked me to mix a couple of more reds for the Red Monkey Restaurant in Raleigh, NC, I said absolutely!

Mixing colors gives me lots of experience in how to brighten, darken or subdue a color. I used PROCEED Metallic Texture Gold as my base. I usually start with a small quantity to see if my color works before I make larger quantities.

To make larger quantities I used the PROCEED Recipe Calculator at www.proceedsystems.com. I entered in my quantities for the ¾ cup mix then hit the scale button. This allows you to scale the recipe to the exact amount you want. I scaled the recipe to 115 oz. and all the tints appeared with the correct amounts I needed to mix a PROCEED Gallon and a 5 Gallon quantity! I love this tool and use it almost every day when I am mixing colors.

Our customers now ask me to custom color match a SW or BM color and usually I can do it. I have been working on some wonderful blues! Now you can purchase small sample sizes and play with color yourself! Or call us and I can help you!
