How about collecting a bunch of paint chips from your local Ace
Hardware store?

Advantages  -Free; pigment content is explicitly defined; you can bring in
a specimen and their little computerized rig can match the color.

Disadvantages - Not widely accepted by the scientific community; you
will have to put up with names like sandstone, sandalwood, and sunset
(but these are better than 6A6, IMHO); and they might make you actually
buy some paint(gg).
