Q:

What colors do you mix to make orange?

A:

Orange is a secondary color created by mixing the primary colors of red and yellow. Orange is considered a warm color and can represent a number of things when used in color theory.

Orange is a vibrant and hot color. It symbolises energy, cheer, excitement and vitality. However, it can be associated with some negative traits, such as brashness, bad taste and a lack of intellectual values. Different shades of orange can range from darker terracotta colors all the way to the lighter salmon and melon colors. Green and purple are considered colors that go well with orange, while blue is its complimentary color on the color wheel.

    How can I mix acrylic paint colors?

    A:

    You can mix a variety of colors with just red, yellow, and blue acrylic paint, but you will have best results if you add several secondary colors to your palette. The best primary colors to start with are cadmium red medium, cadmium yellow medium, and phthalo blue. For white paint, choose titanium white (a strong, opaque, bright color) or "mixing white," a cheaper paint made specifically for color mixing.
