Sterling Color Chart

Post by Larry B » Fri Aug 13, 2010 8:16 pm

Ok, think I've decided to go with the sterling paint. I've got the sterling color chart in pdf form, but was wondering if there is someplace I could get the regular hard chart? Can't tell the actual color on the pdf chart and don't want to spend that kind of money to just guess on a color.
So if anyone knows where I can get a chart please let me know.
Thanks,

At the bottom of this page is a phone number to request a color chart.

No problem Larry, I was just reminding you :)

I sent the chart this morning USPS. Have you used Sterling before? It is LIGHT years ahead of the S-3 in quality. Takes a little while to get used to the way it roll and tips but after that it is slick as a cat....

No haven't used it before, but after reading how guys here have applied it, sounds like I can do it :D One thing I remember reading most, is to keep it thin, as It starts to thicken up, add a bit more reducer to keep it thin.
Now if I can only finalize a color I'll be set.

Wait a minute... I thought we decided on "Cream". Or was it the "Sky Blue". Ohhhhh.... now I remember, it was the "Sea Mist Green". It that right? The "Lemon Mist" or was it the "Ivory"? The Yellow?

I guess I see your point. :wink: Well, we are here for support. :D
