Question Acrylic paint colors that match SU colors???

Okay, I know this a bit obsessive, but has anyone ever tried to match up SU colors to any of the brands of acrylic paint? I prefer Folk Art brand acrylics, but if anyone has done this with another brand (e.g., Delta Ceramacoat, Apple Barrel, etc.), I'd be really interested to hear any matches you came up with!

No, but I do know if you take say a certainly celery reinker add some drops to white acrylic paint you will have certainly celery paint. It matches perfectly.

Yup you can use any of SU's re-inkers (classic or craft) to customize white acrylic to match! I did this for the name frames I made for both my dd's and it worked perfectly!

Yeah, I actually have heard that great tip, I just don't have any reinkers yet ...I still don't even have all the ink pads! : (

Guess I this is yet another good reason to buy the reinkers.

They didn't say, they just said add to intensify the color to the paint.
