What is it and why would you want to use it? Well, it’s great for helping you pick paint colors!

and you want to paint a coordinating¬†accessory to go into your room.¬† Let’s say you need help choosing colors.¬† To solve your problem, you take a trip to the color palette generator!¬†You¬†upload¬†the photograph into the generator, the hamster runs its wheel and¬†a palette like this results:

Is this cool or what??  You now have a printout that you can take to the store, assisting you in choosing your acrylic paint colors.
