Rough Recipe: 1 part Daffodil Yellow; 1 part Moss Rose; 2 parts Bleed Proof White
So peachy pink is like a soft, slightly more pink, orange. To make Orange you mix yellow and red, but we want something softer than orange, so to make peach, we switch out the red with a more pink color.
When I mix colors I don’t really “measure” how much paint I am grabbing, so I will try and explain my process. Usually I grab color by just using my paint brush to drag some paint over, a “swoop” if you will.
I start out with take two “swoops” of white – separate it from your pile of white in case you need to add more white later on.
Add one swoop of Moss Rose – mix well
Add one swoop of Daffodil yellow – and mix well
If it's still not as light as you would like it – add white. If its too yellow – add a tinge more Moss Rose, if it too pink – add a tiny bit more Daffodil Yellow! That's it, easy huh?! Just a side note - because we are mixing in Bleed Proof White it is going to make it a bit more opaque.
P.S. Love you. mean it.
