"Powder also is not the best choice for an exact match to existing painted surfaces. Powder comes in what seems to be an endless list of colors, but multiple colors of powder cannot be mixed to achieve a new color. Doing so would result in a speckled finish; a process that can look cool, but not if you are trying to match a specific color. To have a custom powder made for an exact match, is usually so expensive that the customer chooses the closest match without going custom. "

"Can you match a color?
Yes. If a customer has a paint chip, a powder supplier can match it, both color and gloss. It may not be an exact match, but it will be very close. Also, colors approaching red, orange, and yellow are more expensive, and you may have to fulfill a minimum order quantity. So if you want to coat a door knob to match the electric yellow paint on your house, you may end up buying enough powder to coat the entire floor of the house, for the cost of a used sedan."

Hope this helped you out a little. Good luck with it.
