The paint used on the chips is 'Absolute Matt Emulsion' so if you use this finish then the colour on the chips will be extremely close to the colour you end up with on the walls. However, lighting in the room can slightly alter ones perception of the colour and this is something we cant control. If you were to use a different finish then the you might see a very slight difference in colour due to an increase in the sheen level and batch to batch variation but the colour tolerance on each batch and finish is very tightly regulated.
Hi Littlegreene (how exciting), thanks , is it a large card? I have painted an A5 piece of white card with echo and love how it looks in the room, people keep telling me it will look completely different when I paint it on the cream coloured walls. I'm loathe to paint splodges all over the room.
So is it true that I'll get the same colour on the walls that is on the card??
I think I have the tester pot for eco somewhere - but can't remember what I thought of the colour. We used little greens starling egg in one room which is similar but not as gorgeous as little greens pearl which we pared with a F&B off white in a different room. The paint itself is great quality with good coverage.
