I am looking for the paint formula for a discontinued RL color, English Ivy. My local Home Depot has the formula for the glaze, but not the paint. Any help is appreciated, as 75% of our baseboards have been painted this color and I'm finally getting around to finishing the project :) Thanks! Debbie

If you have some of the paint left over you can take it to a paint store and they will be able to match it for you.

Hi Debbie,

I tint a LOT of RL where I work (NOT a HD!). I've made this color a few times.

1) I take it you don't have the old lid or can?!?!

2) If you don't, when did you get the color made?

3) If per chance you have/find the lid or can, what is the base # example...1292 or 3292) on the bottom-front of your can?

If it's an older base-#, it may not look EXACTLY the same if you put the old formula into the new base.

There's at least a 50/50 chance you'll have to match it!
