Real Paint Pro includes all above paint bases! You can select up to 12 colors (white + up to 11 colors) of each Paint Set. Without a subscription you can use the app only with the Ideal Paint Set.

The apps of the "Real Paint mixing tools" family use measured paint spectral information of painted samples. Big part of the RGB/P3 space can be mixed, but not all RGB/P3 colors. This is not a limitation of the apps, just physics. There are also many colors which can be mixed even if they don't belong to the RGB/P3 color space (you can find these by varying manually the paint amount on the "mixing" page).

Paint recipes can be obtained using several Mixing Strategies:
- “B and W + 2 Colors”: a gray is mixed using Black and White first, then 2 colored bases set Hue and Saturation.
- “B or W + 3 Colors”: 3 colored bases are used to set Hue and Saturation and Black OR White set the Value
- “at least one opaque”: all possible opaque mixing combinations are shown
- “no Black used”: opaque mixing combinations without Black

Each recipe can be Exact or Rounded:
- “Exact recipe” means that each base has an amount with a precision of 0.01 units. If you need % values of each paint base amount, just enter 100 as amount. Exact setting is helpful for weight based measurements using a scale.
- “Rounded recipe” means that each base has an integer number as amount. The recipe will have the minimum possible overall amount computed adding all paint base amounts. The rounded recipes are useful for volume based measurements, like drops, using spoons or squared paper with paint squeezed directly from tubes.

Please note that color of paint coming from various parts of a tube/jar or from different batches of the manufacturer can vary, so mix always small amounts first to be sure that computed recipes meet your needs!

Please check the video tutorials on youtube by searching for "Real Paint mixing tools" to see how to use the app in your paintings.

Optishade images can also be imported directly from the Optishade by StyleItaliano app. These images can be used to create gum or dental colors for the mockups used by technicians.

Excellent App For Painters

I’m a professional artist and use this app almost every day. Even though I know color theory and how to mix paints, it’s nice to sometimes get a little help. There have been times that what looked blue to my eye has actually been more green, etc. It’s very easy to set up. Their customer service is great and has always responded quickly. It’s definitely worth more than $15 a year (Developer please don’t increase the price just because I said that :-)).

Very useful app!

Great documentation on website linked in Settings. Intuitive. Paint brand selection is adequate because most colors don’t change a lot across brands. A super-bargain at $15/year!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your review! We put a huge effort in making the app as good and useful as possible. We are happy when painters appreciate it!

WARNING! Immediately charged without a trial period

Update: Hey, refund me! I’ve never heard of this app before. I’ve just started painting. I am a new customer… I’ve been charged a whole year without having a chance to try the app.

This is a scam artist that somehow is allowed on this platform and Apple done nothing so far! There is no trial. You'll be instantly charged the whole amount from the first second of the "trial period". Please report this scam app to Apple.

Developer Response ,

There is one week free trial period for new customers. This is directly handled by Apple and not by us. If you are not a new customer, the free period is not active. Please don’t write false reviews. Thank you.
