Anybody have the formula for the closet match to Sooner Crimson? I'm painting a room in my house and it's going to be red and I want to make sure it's the right red.
Isn't Shermin Williams the one that has collegiate colors? If not I think Home Depot does.
Martha Stewart Barn Door Red is absolutely the best OU paint match I have found. I know they carry it at Home Depot - and don't be talked into using their OU team colors.

Here is a cool website (Where I got the screen capture from above) that will allow you to plug in the RGB values and select from a number of popular paint lines to get the closest match.
EasyRGB.com provides a complete RGB and COLOR search engine. All you need to match your RGB and color data with paint, inks, real products and commercial color collections.
