I publish here two carefully prepared and spectrally measured datasets of paint swatches. The first set has 286 colors made from 8 tubes of Old Holland oil paints in different combinations. The second set has 397 colors made from 9 tubes of Schmincke watercolor paints. For each mixture, all the ingredients were weighed carefully to achieve the desired proportions. Exact details about the preparation and measurements of the oil and watercolor paint swatches are provoided in the corresponding sections. The data presented here is used in research at the Computatioanl Fabrication Group at MIT and the Computation, Appearance and Manufacturing Group at Max Planck Institute for Informatics.
