Colors to use to Stain (Delta)

I found this when I was cleaning a bit today and thought I would share as I haven't seen one of these charts in a LONG time.  To use American colors some could be converted straight across and for others you will need to refer to a conversion chart.  I used this technique many times to save a few $$.
Delta recommends Gel Stain Medium..   What is needed is a dilutant for the color giving it the ability to move smoothly and evenly.   I don't find myself using Delta paints at all but the converting over is easy.
