When red and green combine, the result is yellow. When red and blue combine, the result is magenta. When blue and green combine, the result is cyan. Additive mixing is used in television and computer monitors to produce a wide range of colors using only three primary colors.
Just so, how do you get blue dye?
Mining blue lapis lazuli. Lapis lazuli is obtained by mining. When you mine lapis lazuli with a stone pickaxe (or better), you get 4–8 pieces for your inventory. You can use lapis lazuli immediately as dye or craft lapis lazuli into various items, including a block for building or decorating.

Make sure that you have enough paint to work with. You will want more blue paint as your base color, than your purple mixing color. Mix a small amount of purple paint into the original blue. You can use your brush or a palette knife to mix your paint.
Mixing a Pale Turquoise. Use white as the base color. If you want to mix an especially pale shade of turquoise, start with white or a very light blue. White paint will make up the bulk of the mixture, so use about as much white paint as you think you'll need – perhaps a bit more.

If you mix red, green, and blue light, you get white light. Red, green, and blue (RGB) are referred to as the primary colors of light. Mixing the colors generates new colors, as shown on the color wheel or circle on the right. This is additive color.
I would mix a brown with white, such as raw sienna or burnt sienna, then raw orburnt umber. Add a little brown to some white, rather than white to some brown (for why see Color Mixing Tips). If this doesn't give you a cream you like, try adding a tiny bit of yellow and/or red (or orange) to warm up the mixture.

For a warm brown. Warm browns work well for painting brick, warm wood tones, and trees in sunlight. To make your brown warmer, experiment with adding red and/or yellow paint a little at a time. If the mixture becomes too warm, you can add a touch of blue paint to cool it down.

Change the hue. If you created your shade of brown by mixing blue and orange, you can change the hue slightly by adding other colors. For example, to create a warmer brown, add red to the mixture. To create a dark, murky brown you could add purple or green.
Mix yellow and blue. Green is a secondary color. To create it, you'll need to combine equal parts of blue and yellow, both of which are primary colors. "Primary" colors exist on their own and cannot be created by mixing other colors.
In the RGB color model, used to make colors on computer and TV displays, cyan is created by the combination of green and blue light. In the RGB color wheel of additive colors, cyan is midway between blue and green. In the CMYK color model, used in color printing, cyan, magenta and yellow combined make black.
Simple answer you cannot combine two pigments to make red. There are three primary colors red, yellow, and blue no other colors can be combined to make them. However there are also the three secondary colors green,orange, and violet that you can make with the three primary colors.
A third color can be introduced into the mix of red and white to develop different shades of pink. A touch of black darkens the tint. The addition of a small amount of another color, such as blue, yellow or green, adds an undertone of that color to the pink tint.
So the short answer is that equal parts red and violet make maroon, and you can adjust the ratio of red and violet to get the specific color you want. Of course it can be broken down further. Let's assume you're talking about paint and you're using red, blue and yellow as your primary colors.
