    Sand ..................33303
    Dark Sandstone.....33510
    Earth Yellow..........33245

    Remember a lot of the older posts with Behr #'s on the lids are not true FS they were color matched, so start with a clean slate.
    Tell the Home Depot clerk the list of the FS codes in the HD paint computer is found by going under "Competitor Color look up" and selecting Federal Standard as the manufacturer then have them enter just the five number code.

    I went to Home Depot today to have them mix me up some of the Desert Tan paint using the code given in the above post but they told me that this is BEHR's old coding system and they could no longer mix using those numbers. Do you have any ideas on how I can get this Desert Tan color I need using new BEHR codes?

    Default Paint Information (Codes and Sources)

    I'll check it out tomorrow but try using the FS code, not the old Behr code. The FS codes have not changed.

    The FS code for desert tan is FS33446. A lot of Home Depot folks don't even know the FS codes are there, but if they'll key it in, it shows up. The question is whether or not the FS code gives them the old formula or the new.

    I'll go the the Home Depot that I've used for paint and see what I can find out.

    My dad works at Home Depot, occasionally in paint. He said that the mixture numbers for the Marquee paint are different from those for the Premium Plus Ultra. Sure enough, they are.
    For the 383 green:
    Behr Premium Plus Ultra:
    D5EA636F-9DA5-493E-8E44-2B1A77CB66E5_zpsr5ece8eh.jpg

    And Behr Marquee:
    B1E1F777-037F-4150-B667-21240E73E799_zpsf3vrfd7v.jpg

    The FSS code is how we made both of these(my dad was showing me how their computer works). As you can see the mixture for each is completely different.
    I don't know anything about the desert tan, but I'm certain the FSS code will get you the proper mix.

    I've seen a few stray posts discussing the correct USAF blue and yellow colors, so I thought I'd post the definitive answer here, with samples and links to the federal standards and a source for chips.


    Strata Blue
    FED-STD-595 Federal Standard 595 Color FS 15045


    Insignia Yellow
    FED-STD-595 Federal Standard 595 Color FS 33538

    Well, that number says it's a semi-gloss (the first 2), tan (the second number '3'), shade 070, or FSS 23070 in the competitive paints part of the paint mixing computers. Here are the steps: Have the paint people find 'competitive paints' in their paint computer and select it, then search for FSS (Federal Supply Standard) and select it, then either fill in the name (usually the top box) or the number, (usually the lower box) and press enter. Then proceed to get the paint mixed.

    Does anyone know the paint code for the blue paint the Air Force uses on their planes to camouflage them with the sky? I'm putting up a very large beam antenna for my ham radio(Steppir 4el) and I want to paint it a color that will help make it a little less noticeable to the neighbors.
