I'm particularly chuffed with this one. The factory technical staff have slaved over this one for much longer than they first anticipated when I rocked up at their office with the colour cards - it has proved very difficult to get right with modern day commercial pigments. Matching the hue and brightness concurrently took a fair bit of trial and error. The software which interprets the factory photospectrometer and works out how much pigment goes in didn't get it right, and it took a lot of manual intervention and downright experience from many combined decades in matching colours to get this for me.

It's here now though, and tonight I sprayed the tin lids. Tomorrow evening they go on sale.

I'm going to let the results speak for themselves:
