The title of this post implies I’m suggesting that one color is “better” than another, and that is NOT the case.
A professional painter told me he only ever uses Kelly Moore paints because they make paint that is more color fast. When I asked him how they did this, his answer was they do not use powdered pigments, they use higher quality liquid pigments.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
I knew from personal experience that different paints do have different levels of durability and different levels of color fastness, which is the degree to which the color stays at a consistent pigment or hue over time.
I had never thought about why this is (painting in not my full time gig) but it does seem reasonable the ingredients with which they add color to paint are not all created equal.
I never was able to verify his claim of liquid pigment vs powdered pigment, but when you stop to think about it, what that w0uld mean is the solid particles which are suspended in the liquid base are very small, which means we know it as a liquid.
All I can definitively say is his comment did influence me to use Kelly Moore paint more often and other brands less often, and I’ve been very happy with the result.
Whether his anecdotal statement is enough to sway you, I don’t know, but I works for me so I recommend you be open.
