Benjamin Moore® Half-Pint Color Samples allow you to "try on" a paint color before you commit to the time and expense of painting an entire room. Interior designers and professional painters do a "brush out" when deciding on color. This entails applying paint to a small section of the wall or several walls to see how the color looks in the actual environment. By sampling a color at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the color will actually look in the room. Each of our 16 oz. paint color samples cover approximately one 4' X 4' area with two coats of paint. You can test a number of different colors at a time. You can also paint smaller test swatches on several walls to see how a particular color will look throughout a room under various lighting conditions.
