So I got a CPC color sample set...

how do I tell which color is which? :ROFL: :ROFLMAO:

specifically, I can't really tell the difference between some of the tan/brown-ish chips, dark greens, and dark blue/blurple/purple

Retro blue and blurple are really close together. You can tell the difference between the colors based on if they're weighted or not (have brass flakes in the clay or not).

Which ones do you have trouble with? I bet I can ID them on sight.

I named the ones I think I got (could be wrong though)... Everything else is unknown to me.

Everything from left to right on the unlabeled chips.

Yellows are DG Yellow, Yellow, Canary, and DG Saturn first row. DG Arc yellow, DG Peach, DG Tiger bottom row.

The missing greens are retro green and dark green.

Missing blues are dark blue, retro blue, and blurple.

Purples are purple, retro lavender, pink, and lavender.

The red photo is butterscotch, red, retro red top row, DG orange (not butterscotch), mandarin red, and maroon.

You're right on everything else.

As I thought while reading the opening post, this thread wouldn't be a real obstacle for the PCF dudes... :cool

Fyi, not that it would help at this point, but CPC ships their samples in the exact order to match the color layout on their page (well they used to anyway).

And your local craft store/CVS/etc sells cheap 1” dia. stickers that you can use to write the color on and stick to one side. It gives you a rough sense of how the base colors will look with an inlay.

^this. Mine came in order and I was careful to label them before messing with them too much.

I found this just in time! About to bust open a sample and wouldn’t have know this.
