Color Mixing Examples:

While this is not an absolute index, it provides a starting point from which you can work to mix and match a color chip.
You must use a color chip to accurately match a color.
This index, contributed by Mike Marecki, and Kenneth Wiker°y from Norway, is the original June 1987 Dick Petit
Hobby-Poxy instructions for achieving an AN, FS color match. You can use any paint manufacturer, however it may
require a color component adjustment. All in all, it beats starting with no references.
