This practical, hands-on course will show refinishers how to match, to formulate, to mix and to apply solid, metallic and pearlescent colours. It offers a combination of colour theory and practical tinting exercises.
Using colour matching tools, such as ChromaVision, Fan Deck and test panels, this course sets out to teach participants how to work out colour formulations and mix paint. It can be adapted to focus on the specific colours of a marque, but generally covers a range of colours that refinishers will typically encounter in their everyday work.
In simple steps, we teach attendees how to break colours down into easy-to-match segments, how to develop a formula and to adapt it to specific conditions. Based on this, participants then begin to set up their own personal database using the ColorNet Pro software and find out how to document, to record and to store information on changes made to colour formulations. The course also includes information on the different tinting processes and gives a comprehensive overview of the available range of Cromax colour matching tools.
At the end of the course, all participants are given a binder with all the course notes, as well as information on the Cromax Basecoat tints, including a tinting guide. They also receive a certificate of completion.
