Mixing of acrylic colors based on the HLC Color Atlas

Mixing of acrylic colors based on the HLC Color Atlas. Another implementation of the HLC Color Atlas comes from the physicist and artist Dr. Ulrich Backes. He has put a recipe database for 1225 colors from the HLC Color Atlas online. In the web application, the proportions of the basic colors can be varied individually for a basic recipe and the color result is simulated on the monitor. The mixing system is based on the Sirius® Primary acrylic system from Lascaux.


We see this development as an important step towards formulating any CIELAB and RGB color tones. The vision is that this will be available in every hardware store in the not too distant future. Free color will find its way!
