Benjamin Moore® Half-Pint Colour Samples allow you to "try on" a paint colour 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 colour. This entails applying paint to a small section of the wall or several walls to see how the colour looks in the actual environment. By sampling a colour at home, you'll get the most accurate sense of how the colour will actually look in the room. Each of our 16 oz. paint colour samples cover approximately one 4' X 4' area with two coats of paint. You can test a number of different colours at a time. You can also paint smaller test swatches on several walls to see how a particular colour will look throughout a room under various lighting conditions.
