    I'm after some grey paint for my studio walls. Is there any option other than getting somewhere to mix it.

    Most DIY shops only do grey in kitchen and bathroom with a semi gloss finish. I tried a couple of testers, one was quite green and the other had a really magenta bias.

    A nice neutral grey would be super. Smile

    Most DIY stores with a fairly modern mixing machine, ( B&Q ) etc will be able to scan a sample and match fairly close to that.

    Try taking in a Grey Card and see if they can match it.

    Cheers Chris, I'm calling by Wickes and B&Q on the way home, just wondering if there was an off-the-shelf alternative that I'd missed somewhere.

    Unlikely as most DIY stores don't have the space to keep all the colours available, they only keep the profitable fast movers and mix the rest from a few base colours.

    Hi Tony, If you have a look at the Dulux website they have all of their colours listed. Looks like 'Mineral Haze' might be the sort of thing you are after. They describe it as a 'calm neutral'. Another option might be undercoat/primer... although I suspect you might struggle to tell the colour without actually putting it on the wall.
