Have you ever looked into a can of paint before the color was mixed in? We hadn’t, until Lost at E Minor pointed us towards these gorgeous photographs of paint in its last stages of creation: after the color tints were poured in, but before they were combined with the base paint. The photographs turn the paint cans into mini, circular abstract artworks — a little like Rothko, or maybe just Spin Art. In either case, we’d like a few “after” photos to satisfy our curiosity — just what color does that blue and gold combination make? Click through to see our favorite shots from this cool series, and then head here to check out many more.
