A little of this and a little of that!

Color matching can be tricky.  Sometimes it's a simple matter of adding a dab of white to lighten, or black to deepen but most of the time it is a less simple matter of 'a little bit of this and a little bit of that.'  It's exciting when I 'hit it' on the first try but that doesn't happen very often.  Usually, I can get 90-95% there fairly quickly but then I have to make tiny adjustments until I'm happy, all the while taking copious notes.  It can be time consuming but it is a rewarding process.

Today's couples have so many choices!  And color matching is just one of the special services I offer!
