Brick Red + white + black Add white or black to any color to create a tint or shade. 50/50 Mix = + Sky Blue Midnight Blue = + Midnight Blue Mix together two of the three primary colors (yellow, blue, red) to create secondary colors (green, purple, orange). Pig Pink 50/50 Mix Mix tints or shades of primary colors to affect the hue values of their secondary colors. Opacity is also a characteristic of color that you can explore in glaze. One coat of glaze makes transparent color that you can see through. (Three coats of glaze makes a solid opaque color.) Yellow to red colors are considered warm and appear to move forward from the background. Green to purple colors are regarded as cool and appear to recede. Mixing two complementary colors creates a neutral color. That neutral creates the illusion of a shadow between the two complementary colors.
