    Hi,

    My painter/decorator uses a leyland trade place for paint. Its hard to tell from the colour chart if its the right colour so he said if i go into bnq get some testers and take the one i like to leylands they will match it.

    My question is will it be a perfect match?

    It depends how fussy you are, it depends on thickness of paint,type of paint, batch, even how one stirs the paint before use,

    Tester pots ( normally Matt Emulsion) are available to give some idea of the colour choice of paint
