  4. Place the box on a rug in the upper left corner.
  5. Remove the lid and place it under the box (or next to the box if the lid is to be replaced after the materials are removed).
  6. Say, "I will match and then grade the color tablets."
  7. Remove one section of the tablets holding the wooden or plastic edges, and place them in mixed order in a horizontal line toward the top of the table or rug.
  8. Select the darkest tint and place it below the box.
  9. Select the matching color tablet and place it to the right of the darkest tablet.
  10. Continue in the same manner with the remaining tablets, choosing the darkest and then finding the match.
