Re: PFE VS SANTA FE ORANGE

I concur. I mixed Scalecoat II orange to yellow at 4:1 and was shocked at how orange it was. I mixed 3:1, 2:1, 1:1 and all were still too orange to my eye. I then mixed 1:2 and 1:3 orange to yellow, and 1:3 came closest to the ATSF color guide CMYK color recommendation. I didn't do 1:4, so I'll mix that to see hour it looks, as it may be a good fade mix. That's a perfect example for not blindly following earlier recommendations without verification.

That mix was mentioned in the SFRD reefer book as well However since that was written the recipes at Scalecoat changed I found that reversing the ratios gave the desired results Pierre Oliver www.elgincarshops.com www.yarmouthmodelworks.com
