Wow, someone's quite catty, aren't they? Shesus. Was suggesting for people to post as they hit the colors - you know, team effort.

But, since you're obviously doing this on your own and all, I won't step on your toes and help or suggest close matches.

Didn't mean to sound catty..but if someone says that for example...the Kozuke Samurai's robes are Apple Barrell-XXX and someone else says Folk Art-XXX and another says Citadel XXX we will post all 3.

Very cool Idea to post out a universal brand/color chart for us customizers!

On a lot of the figures, it's going to be tough to directly identify the original colors, as many of them have been darkened (or lightened) by the "wash" color.

Still an intriguing idea though, and I'll keep this thread in mind the next time I do some painting. I'm sure I can come up with a few.

I would use something like, red ochre mixed with a touch of black.

a mix of 1 part black and 4 part golden yellow apple barrel is an incredibly close (only slightly darker than) swamp water color, also, English Ivy Green (also apple barrel) is slightly lighter, a mix of the two may yeild the exact color, i have yet to try this though.

No more giant sigs

Acryllic or model paint

I am just getting into custom creating, and I am wondering about paint. I picked up some model paint at Michaels because I wasn't sure if acrylic paint would stick well and/or stay on well. For those of you who have used it, does it work well?

Each prayer a drop, eventually the bucket will tip.

Yep!. Just primer the figure before painting.

Re: "Official" Paint Index

My generic humanoid skin color is Apple Barrel Carmel Candy. It seems almost identical to the original colors on HS figures. Occasionally I'll add a dab or White or Burnt Umber if I want to make it lighter or darker (respectively...)
