Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.

So your trying to source the Clay 39 paint or wanting an alternative colour?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
wanting an alternative colour - colour is too dark and tends to go a olivey greeny shade

Ok the best thing to do is go to B&Q and get them to make a bespoke colour, since looking on a computer screen would be too difficult to find the right shade.

I have taken the tile into B & Q and they have put it under the scanner but there are too many shades in the tile so is not picking up the right colour

Then the only option you have is to make up your own colour by mixing sample pots together to create the shade you want, test it on the wall so you can see what it looks like when dry, then take the finished mixed colour to B&Q and let them analyse that and make more of it
