C2 quart with lid off

C2 has dedicated itself to creating products that place artistry over automation, quality over quantity, and creativity over corporate structure. C2 is synonymous with superior paint color. The company invests in the finest ingredients, a one-of-a-kind colorant system, and exclusive technology to create sophisticated, alluring choices.

Every color in the C2 Paint palette is formulated as full-spectrum, using multiple pigments that represent more of the color wheel than traditional paint formulas and no black pigment in the color recipes. The beauty of full-spectrum colors is that regardless of the current light condition, the paint color interacts with light in a compelling, luminous way. 


C2 is the first and only paint cooperative in North America created by a group of independent paint dealers. They weren't impressed with the quality of paint on the market so they decided to create the best for their customers.
