What's the difference between the colors "gun metal" and "grey" and "silver?"
I see it in fashion, cars, motorcycles, jewelry, you name it all over tv...I guess it's different hues or tones in a color, but shees!
How many do we need?
Oh and then in the Audi line, they have more..."Dolphin" grey and so on...

Its like going from dull to semi gloss to shiny!
Grey = Dull
Gun Metal = Semi Gloss
Silver = Shiny!
That's the best I can describe it as.

Gray is a generic term for a scale of shades with any combination of black and white
Silver and gunmetal are both metallic shades of gray,
Silver is a specific type of metal, typically a light shade, very luminous and reflective.
Gunmetal is an alloy (mixture) of metals, usually a darker, cooler (bluer) shade, which is less luminous and reflective.

I work a lot with colors. Not only is there Gun metal and silver and dolfin and all these specialty colors but there are variations of each. So you can have gun metal 1 which is different than gun metal 30, etc.

Reminds me of a paint commercial. They had colors like "Freedom Trail".
How can you name a color after something that has no color? Might as well have a color called "Summer Breeze".

I have a dark gold Concorde that they call "cinnamon" because that's what color the spice is....my registration says- "red", I guess like cinnamon candies. Someone at the DMV tried to translate it I think and they won't change it so it's a pain if I ever get pulled over...
