Contrast Paints

Found this link showing 3 possible base colours and their impact on every contrast paint, rather useful even if the difference between some of them is pretty slight:

I like the soft ivory base, or straight white myself. The GW contrast spray gives a beautifully smooth finish, but still with bite for the paint, which has its uses.
