How to Blend Pigments for Beginners



When it comes to mixing colors, there are a few terms you need to know. The three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue. The three secondary colors are orange, green, and purple. And then there are tertiary colors, which are made by mixing a primary and a secondary color.

Now that you know the basics, let's get started!

To start, you'll need a palette and some pigments. For your palette, you can use a plate, a piece of glass, or even a disposable paper plate. And for your pigments, you can use any kind of paint, whether it's watercolor, acrylic, or oil.

Once you have your supplies, it's time to start mixing! Begin by adding a small amount of one color to your palette. Then, add a touch of another color. And finally, add a third color.

Keep in mind that you can always add more pigment if you want a darker color. But if you add too much, you'll end up with a muddy mess. So start with a little and then add more as needed.

Now that you know how to mix pigments, get creative and experiment with different colors!
