Paint Manufacturer lists of Munsell Notations

For those interested in Munsell notations and additional color info for several major paint brands I am listing the following manufacturer info. The link for each page or chart will be listed above. Be sure to check the actual manufacturer’s page from time to time to make sure that the paint compositions haven’t changed. Please let me know if you are aware of any more that I can add!

In addition, don’t forget about the Colorwell Munsell Explorer resource created by Connecticut painter John Morfis.. By using brand-specified notations as well as his own Munsell determinations w/spectrophotometer readings, John allows visitors to browse through the specs of paint brands like Schmincke Norma, Williamsburg, Winsor & Newton, Grumbacher and Gamblin oil paint. Click on the “Munsell Explorer” tab on his site colorwell.org and select a hue page to see which notations correspond to one or more paint readings. The “Paint Finder” tab helps you to find paints in various brands with the same pigment code.
