When I downloaded the colour Buster I got four parts. One of them is  identified as a large Colour Buster. It appears to me that it is just a large version of the colour Buster but there is no slider shown. It this just  for easier use and you have to make your own slider or have I missed something.

Hi Dixon, that is correct, I had requests for a larger version of the Color Buster (right hand side), but at that size, the slider will not fit onto a printed page anymore.  :-\ So you need to construct your own manually using a larger sheet of card

OK! I got it and after several viewings of the video, I feel ready to test out my ability to use the Buster.
I also received another version of the Buster. I can pretty much figure out how to use the "Rough Match" spectrum but I am at a loss as to the %white graduation. Probably if I knew more about colour it would make sense, but unfortunately I don't have a clue. What, where and when would you use this chart?

I have a demo video that I created for the Grey Buster. I will be uploading that within the next week. That will explain exactly how the Grey Buster works O0

PS - :bigwelcome: to the forum, tell us a bit more about what you like to paint  :)

Nolan,

Where do I get this color buster and grey buster???    :confused:

When I first signed on to Paintbasket, I had health issues to deal with and had to put painting on the back burner of my life for a while. 

I remember you were offering the color buster for us to purchase but I didn't take advantage of it.  Later, I looked for it in the Art Store here but didn't see it.  It sounds like it might be a helpful tool.

 :thankyou:

Nolan!  Thanks so much!  I just downloaded the Color Buster.  I've been looking around the Color Buster thread and I found the video where you explain how to use it.  I'm looking forward to your new one.  I can use all the help I can get and appreciate all you do for us.

How do you spread yourself so far, always right here to help.  You're like a superman!
