Colorimetric analysis of acrylic paints composition using an integrating sphere

Natalia Nosidlak


In this paper we presented the methodology of color determination of the acrylic paint basing on the known values of amount pigments used to color creation. In the work we present possibility of pigment amount determination for paints in whose one type of dye is used from the knowledge of color parameters expressed in units of L*a*b system. Also we show the system L*a*b is particularly useful to evaluate the differences of color maps derived from photographs and prints.
