What Inkscape Color Number for Red Oxide Primer?

Postby Cedarwoodron » Wed Jul 01, 2015 2:15 am

I am a modeler who makes his own decals (inkjet printed on either clear or white decal paper). For a current project, I need to print white letters on a "red oxide primer" color backround (on white decal paper). I tried the maroon color option in the color bar at the bottom of the screen, but it was not as close as I wanted. Is there a correlation between the numbered colors that Inkscape offers and RGB values?

Thanks

Hi

Try 140, 42, 29 for R, G and B respectively.

The correlation between the position of the colors in the inkscape palette comes from their position in the palette file.
You can make your own palettes by any text editor.

See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=13996&p=54708&hilit=manual+palette#p54710
Good Luck!
