# Texture paint color is the wrong shade

I'm trying to make a carpet for a bedroom I'm making but when I got to paint it a color very close to white, it comes out dark gray. I set it to the right color in the color wheel and everything but it doesn't seem to be painting like that. Any help?

• Can't see your strength, is it on 1? Does it work when you change your blend type to Add – S.Visser May 24 '18 at 23:57
• Changing the blend type to add did it! Thanks so much!! – sac396 May 24 '18 at 23:59

So (full credit to S. Visser here) I went to where it said 'Blend' underneath the strength slider an then changed it to 'add'. Hope this helps!
