Why does titanium white paint turn pink?


add drop of blue and this should solve the problem,

for future reference - what paint? aquarel? pastel? oil? acrylic? tempera?

solvent sometime can be a problem, if you use varnish - varnish naturally turns bit of yellow, sometime pinkish tint, but you need to check if solvents are compatible.

there is heaps of variables in paint mixes, you need to check purity of the pigment (rutile ore contamination's will tend to discolour pigment anything between brown and pink for example with the age), you need to check opacity of the paint (how transparent it is - background may cut through it and sublight it red), you need to check viscosity (light viscosity and dry pigment in wet on wet will "suck" paint from the background), all of these need to be check.

if you have more questions on the subject - you need to provide what medium you use and what is exactly effect.

hope this will help you - do not forget to vote...

Old elec. wiring is showing verdigris ( grease ) on the plaster surface! what do I seal the surface before painting?


ask your "local paint store" manager first...
if they do not know, I suggest washing down the wall, scratching it lightly with sandpaper after it is dry, then apply an alcohol based primer to seal the grease. I would then prime with a good latex primer before final coating. If you are painting pastels, or very dark colors (red, Blue, Black), tint the primer toi as close to the color you want.
Good luck

I painted light gray that now looks lavender on the wall...I am pretty sure it is the lighting in the room (CFL bulbs) as when I take the roller into another room with natural light or fluorescent lighting...


I painted for many years. And now work with photoshop each day.
The selected grey was probably in the blue family instead of yellow family. Most interior colors look better if they come from the warm yellow family, including greys.
There are greys for every color in the spectrum ... from yellow to red to blue. If you pick a grey with bit of red, it will start to look mauve. Orange and it will look brown. Blues inside the grey will turn purple real quick.
Moreover, all colors and finishes are contextual and pick up surrounding colors. Especially satin-or-shiny finishes, because they pick up local colors that change intended hue. For example blue drapes will turn white room bluish. If the house next door is red, and the light comes in window, it will turn white room into pink. Green leaves, and the light from window turn white room green. So when you pick a grey that has bit of blue, the color can change for many reasons beside light bulb. Each room is totally different.
Most folks pick colors by looking at color chip in the store, instead of painting a section of wall inside home. And most folks do not ask the paint store clerk which tints are in that particular color. Sometimes the black tint will turn some bases into a bluish hue.
Go back to paint store and get another grey color from the yellow spectrum.

My screen has little dots appearing sometimes red sometimes blues behind the picture i just replaced the lamp bulb as i thought it would cure the problem


the projection tube needs to be adjust for color alignment, each tube (red, green, blue) must be aligned so you there would be no color smear appear on screen. if it is aligned try to set up the color balance, hue etc.

Old pink and purple bathroom needs help.


The consensus here is a medium to pale/light blue - black or dark blue would blend better, but it would be one darn dark bathroom. You want something that blends, not accentuates the purple.

Hope this helps :)
