Hi OhThatGirl2001,

Thanks for the link. I've downloaded it and saved it with my other color charts.

Same here. That's a good chart and I also got the brown and brunette charts also. The site looks like it has other goodies as well.

When you look at the brunette hair page, does the last one - 32.63.40 look dark green to you? When I printed it and in Photoshop it comes out dark green. The reason I ask is to see if my calibration is off.

Thanks,

Sharon

Your monitor is fine, it is dark green and so is the one next to it. Can't say why they thought brunettes hair could look green. I'm a brunette and I know my hair is not anywhere near green. I would say we forget those two examples.

Thank you, DJ.

That had me worried.

Hand Coloring - Brunette Hair

Hi again Sharon,

Well, I decided to try to see how "green" the last two colors really are. Surprisingly, it was not that green used as an overlay on an existing color. It is meant to enhance the brunette tone. 69.74.57 is actually quite a nice color. I think given the right image it might just work. 32.63.40 is a bit wild but I'm going to try it and see if it works on other brunettes. I've attached good ole Auntie Mickey's image with and overlay of 69.74.57

hand color

You did a great job with this handcoloring. There is a tad bit of compression due to how you put the jpeg up! The photo has a nice warm feeling. The way handcoloring should look!

Excellent!

Thanks,
