Our associates find inspiration in some of the most unique places at The Home Depot. From the hardware aisle to the paint desk, there’s always something around the corner to spark creativity for your next do-it-yourself project.

Check out this behind the scenes look at Paint Tint Art. It’s what unmixed paint looks like before it’s shaken for customers. Paint Tint Art is similar to latte art, where the method of mixing paint results in a pattern or design on the surface. We know – it’s hard to look away!

A fiery mixture of warm reds evoke feelings of summertime. Despite summer coming to end, sunbursts are a friendly reminder that it’s never too late to enjoy the outdoors.

Mixing paint is fun when you get to see how tints are combined to make a range of colors!

Home Depot associate 1950s_sweetie says, “This was an ‘oops’ gallon. I assume someone dispensed the tint, but didn’t shake the can afterward. It seems like the colorant dispersed overnight.”
