GTI ColorMatcher Light Booth in the Learning Zone

GTI ColorMatcher

The Learning Zone is home to a few low-tech tools such as rulers, scissors or a light box but we also have a Color Matching System Booth.

It’s a great tool for matching or inspecting colours under multiple light sources—giving you accurate immediate feedback on how the same object is perceived under different lighting environments.

This ColorMatching Booth can also double as a tool for documenting your artwork. It has a sturdy work surface to place your work on, and diffuse lighting with controlled colour temperature light source.

You can use white or coloured seamless paper when documenting your artwork. All we ask is for you to use light-tack tape that will not leave residue on the unit.

Visit these resources to learn more about the ColorMatcher Booth or for further guidance on documenting your artwork:
