Your thoughts please am doing a thin coat job at the mo and the customer chose light bronze TC15
primed the wall today with the same colour as the top coat and now she is not sure about the colour now.
wants it darker or in terracotta so before i ring k-rend in the morning who are very good when i ring them for specs and advice.
would it be possible to change the colour myself or am i doomed your thoughts please as its cost me a small fortune i got 3 tubs to tint if i can, fingers crossed k-rend might be able to help was,nt a good day today knowing customer is not happy with the colour.

You'd have to take it to them to add more colour. It can be made darker but can't be made lighter. They'll charge extra though.

Markla the KRend TC15 is tinted in Northern Ireland,did you buy it direct from them or through a builders merchant.
Did your customer pick the colour of a sample card , you can get a 5kg sample tub from KRend and make a sample before you buy the materials.

@tyzak i got the tc15 through minster they did it as a favor as they stock Weber mainly.
to be fair the lass did say she would ring k-rend see if she could do something but i dont hold out much hope.
customer chose the colour from the sample pack they sent me which i must say when i show potential customers they are impressed and i get a fair bit of work from it.
i even showed her the websit with their colour swatch simulator again she went for light bronze now though things have all changed i,m going to be stuck with tc15 am trying to convince customer to have it done and if it dont darken as it dries out ill put a silicone paint over it which sort of defeats the object of having a low maintenance self cleaning product.

people are a funny breed ar,nt they.

Surely if customer has chosen the colour then any cost involved is there's to burden?

Unless the colour looks completely different to the sample provided?
