Hmm, its always a bit difficult when there isn't a picture.

I have a couple of possibilities for you to investigate;

1. Canelle Effect - code 189 (this should be an orange shade).

2. Jaune Tournesol - code 377 (this should be a shade of yellow).

Reasons I've given you both are that as Noel says, a good paint mixing shop should have paint chips/swatches, and this will hopefully narrow your choices. Also, what can appear as one colour to one person, can appear totally different to another.

All the best.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
