I have noticed many times that the color bar on the packaging very's lighter and darker, some times I think its the packaging print, other times I think it depends how long the package has been sitting on the shelf (fades over time). I always mix a very small amount and let it set completely for my clients to approve before moving forward with the complete install. I never count on a color card/ piece of paper or any other color samples to be 100% a match from what I have purchased, doesn't matter if its paint, stains, grout, etc. anything colored can very.
Another tip: ALWAYS mix all of the packages together before starting, why, again because the color consistancy is never 100% the same.
