Create your dream colours with 3 simple steps

It's great to mix your own colours and create unique pastel shades. But how do you actually mix colours?


With our 3 steps, it doesn't get any easier!


You only need three colours to make all the beautiful colours: red, blue and yellow. These three colours are called primary colours.


To achieve as many shades as possible, we also recommend using white and black.  

Step 1

Mix two primary colours (50/50) to get secondary colours.
Red + Blue = Purple
Blue + Yellow = Green
Yellow + Red = Orange


Step 2

Mix a primary colour with a secondary colour (50/50) to get a tertiary colour.
Ex: Yellow + Green = Light Green


Step 3

To get pastel colours, mix a tertiary colour with white. Add a little white at a time until you get the pastel colour you want.
For example: light green + white = pastel green 


Tip: If you mix in a little black, you can achieve even more shades!
