    New to restoration, just bought some pinballs and want to touch up the paint on cabinet and playfield. I am Considering to buy a colour code identifier, like the X-Rite Capsure RM200, to make it easier find the true matching colours.

    However, i would only need small amounts of each colour since we are talking about small areas to touchup, and am worried that they dont mix such small amounts in store. So I have to mix myself i suppose.

    My question is, do anybody know if it is possible to mix color according to a given colour code (RAL, NCS, Pantone) by myself? Any guide? It should be colour based acrylic i suppose (for the pf).

    Not a painter but I mix Pantone colour by eye every day. So I imagine possible, just a different process.
