How Are Colors Made?

Answer

All colors are made from the three primary colors, which are yellow, blue and red. By mixing these colors, you can make other colors and shade variations. For example, yellow and blue make green. Blue and red make purple. Red and yellow make orange. To make the orange a lighter shade, you would simply add more yellow into the mix and to make it a darker orange you would add more red.

All colors are made up of a combination of the primary colors. The primary colors are red, blue and yellow. From these three colors you can make every color in the rainbow. There are secondary colors which is simply two primary colors that are mixed together. Green is an example of a secondary color (blue and yellow). Then there are tertiary colors which are made by mixing a primary color with a secondary color.
