Which colors make blue?
The three primary colors, red, yellow and blue, are the only colors that cannot be created by mixing other colors. Blue mixed with red makes purple, blue mixed with yellow makes green and yellow mixed with red makes orange.
The primary colors of light are red, green, and blue. If you subtract these from white you get cyan, magenta, and yellow. Mixing the colors generates new colors as shown on the color wheel, or the circle on the right. Mixing these three primary colors generates black.
- The more purple you use, the darker
Colors that are directly across from each other on the color wheel complement each other. In this case, gold/yellow is directly across from purple on the color wheel. The exact color will depend on how much of each color you use, but either way you will end up with a brown color.
- Commonly people think about pigment and in that case the color you get when mixing blue and red would be purple or violet. However, if you are referring to additive color (light), then the result of mixing red and blue light would be magenta.
- mixing pink with blue to make a nice light purple or a light violet or lavender depending the percentage of each one. If you mix pink and blue a specific shade (according to shades of your blue and pink colour) of voilet or purple will appear.
RYB (red–yellow–blue) make up the primary color triad in a standard artist's color wheel. The secondary colors purple–orange–green (sometimes called violet–orange–green) make up another triad. Triads are formed by three equidistant colors on a particular color wheel.
- The RGB color model is an additive color model in which red, green and blue light are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colors. The name of the model comes from the initials of the three additive primary colors, red, green, and blue.
- Mix red with orange and violet. Start with two fresh spots of red paint. Add orange paint to one and violet paint to the other. You should be able to mix the two colors in equal parts and still make a red hue, but the red element will be stronger if you use a little less of the secondary color (orange or violet).
- The three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue; they are the only colors that cannot be made by mixing two other colors. The three secondary colors are green, orange, and violet; they are each a mixture of two primary colors. Their hue is halfway between the two primary colors that were used to mix them.
Yellow paint reflects most light at long wavelengths and absorbs light at short wavelengths. Because blue paint and yellow paint both reflect middle (green appearing) wavelengths when blue and yellow paint are mixed together, the mixture appears green.
- To mix a brown you mix a primary with its complementary color, so purple and yellow; blue and orange; or red and green (See video tutorial of making brown color). There is a diverse amount of Brown in nature. This color can be mixed with any other color.
- You can mix these colors with a standard box of red (r), yellow (y), blue (b) and green (g) food coloring. Mix 1 cup frosting with the drops indicated. (Don't be alarmed: 100 drops is only about 1 teaspoon.) If using store-bought white frosting, use the numbers in parentheses.
- Originally Answered: What will the color be if you mix green and pink? It's depending on the amount of each paint you put in. Pink and green mixture will make a brown or gray. More pink will give you a browner tone, more green will give you a grayer tone.
