What colors do you mix to make gold?

Answer

Create the color gold by mixing 100 parts yellow, 3 parts magenta and 1 part blue. Gold is commonly represented in art by the color yellow or by the color with a bit of orange or brown mixed in.

The signature shininess of gold is actually a property of the metal and not color; it is not possible to achieve a metallic sheen by mixing colors. In order to achieve a metallic look, it is necessary to mix in an additive, such as gold powder. The colors achieved by these pairings do not as closely resemble gold as the aforementioned mixture, but they do successfully convey the idea of gold.
