It all makes sense, with the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor

Colour matching is a relatively new technology, and one that has been enthusiastically adopted by professional painters and decorators. It’s easier than ever to match a customer’s new paint to their existing colour scheme, interior decorating, exterior features, or furniture.

As a customer, you could go to your local hardware store and ask them to colour-match your paint based on an old photograph, paint flake, colour sample, or fabric swatch. But that takes time away from your project and can be hit-and-miss.

Now colour matching is even easier with the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor. You can do your own colour-matching, determine the paint colours you need, and order everything online from PaintAccess.

 

In this video, Harriet from PaintAcess unboxes a brand new Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor and shows us exactly what you get and how it works. 

 


The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor is made in Canada (which explains the spelling) and is almost as beautiful as the colours it will help you match. Ideal for those who appreciate the fusion of technology and design, the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor is at home among the most high-tech tools and toys.

The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor can easily match and identify any colour with a simple scan, and pair it with one of the 200,000+ paint colours and harmonies in the free Nix Paints app, or with digital colour values using the free Nix Digital app. A full list of colour libraries in available on the Nix website www.nixsensor.com

The best part (we think) is that you can take your scan results, head straight to www.PaintAccess.com.au and buy all your paints online. You can scan and order on the spot; no need for waiting in line.

The broad range of uses for the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor makes it ideal for painters, decorators, interior designers, colour consultants, and contractors. The Nix Mini 2 does a lot, but is also comes with a lot, including:

  •   Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor unit
  •   Nix Mini Lanyard
  •   Micro USB Cable
  •   Quick start guide
  •   FREE lifetime access to the Nix Paints Android and iOS Apps
  •   FREE lifetime access to the Nix Digital Android and iOS Apps

nixThe Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor is the perfect solution for your colour matching needs. Step up to the next level for the sake of your customers or your home projects, with the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor and PaintAccess.

 

I just bought a house, can the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor help me to match the colours?


Absolutely. When you buy a house that isn’t newly built, the walls and features are probably already painted. But years of use might have left them flaking, peeling, marked or stained. Repainting those walls is a quick and easy way to refresh your new (old) house.  


In many cases, houses will have been painted in well-known colours like Dulux Whisper White, Lexicon® or White on White™ or Taubman’s Stormy Shadow or Cotton Sheets and the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor can identify those immediately so that you can order more.


If you’re lucky, the previous owners have left an unlabelled tin behind. Apply some of the paint to a surface in an out-of-the-way area, scan it with the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor, and head to PaintAccess.com.au to get a fresh supply to start your project. It really is that easy.

 

What about paint for other things?


Absolutely! The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor is a colour scanning tool and the associated apps include hundreds of thousands of samples. They are regularly used by photographers and graphic designers too. But at PaintAccess we use the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor to colour-match paint for a wide variety of projects.


The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor has helped PaintAccess customers to match colours for indoor and outdoor house painting, outdoor furniture painting, fence and retaining wall painting, furniture restoration, and toy and hobby painting.


Even car restoration specialists can use the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor to colour-match decades-old paint colours when choosing a colour for a car restoration paint job.


What if it can’t find my colour?


With 200,000+ colours in the app, we’d be very surprised if that were the case. But as an added fall-back, the Nix Digital app can provide simply colour values, like a computer program would. You can take those values straight to PaintAccess and we can mix up a new tin of paint in that colour.


The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor can easily match and identify any colour with a simple scan, and pair it with one of the 200,000+ paint colours and harmonies in the free Nix Paints app, or with digital colour values using the free Nix Digital app. A full list of colour libraries in available on the Nix website: www.nixsensor.com


We’re confident you’ll be able to match you colour without any problems, but Nix also has a great support service, and you can always contact PaintAccess for assistance or advice.


I have matched my colour, but I don’t know what it would work well with?


No problem! The Nix Paints app also includes a huge number of “harmonies” among those 200,000+ colours, meaning you can also find paint colours that complement the colour you already have, or the colour you have chosen.


The Nix apps give you everything you need to identify your colours, match them when you buy new paint, and produce a harmonious colour scheme in which all the colours you have selected work well together.


That’s why it’s super-popular with interior designers and decorators. They already know which colours work well together but the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor and associated apps can be a great inspiration.


All this new technology! What was wrong with the old method?


Digital colour matching is a new technology. Historically, you would need a sample of the paint from your walls; either paint that had peeled off or the last part of a nearly empty can of paint, painted onto a piece of cardboard and then left to dry.


You would take that into a bricks-and-mortar hardware store or paint supplies shop where an expert would compare it to one of the hundreds of samples kept in a folder for each paint manufacturer. The process could take hours. Sometimes you would need to leave a sample for a few days until a specialist consultant came to visit that store and provide some advice.


That all sounds slow, and imprecise! But at least it worked, right?


Not really. You still weren’t guaranteed an accurate result. That’s because older paints degraded and faded at a different rate. A faded brown paint might look like tan or beige. So based on the walls, you get a tin of tan or beige paint to supplement what’s left of a five-year-old tin of paint in the garage, only to find out they are totally different colours.


Historically, the easiest way was to repaint everything, all at once, with a brand-new colour. And because of how paint was manufactured, that usually meant moving out of your home for a few days.


So, the new technology is much better?


Much, much better. And personal devices like the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor open up a world of possibilities. You can quickly and easily do the colour matching yourself and be on your way to buying and applying new paint.


You don’t need to hire consultants or visit a bricks-and-mortar shop to have your colour-matching done by someone else. You can do everything yourself, on-site, and consult the app before making a decision, or providing a customer with advice about colour selection.


The Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor is the future of colour-matching and here at PaintAccess we’re excited about it.
