Magenta Magic

Right at this very moment, art teachers are telling children about the three primary colors.  And they’re getting it wrong.

Have you ever tried to mix red, yellow or blue paints?  It never works out as intended.  Red and yellow don’t make that crayon-perfect pumpkin orange.  It’s because the primary colors you need are magenta, yellow and cyan.

Magenta is what you would get if you mixed red with blue and white.  To make a perfect orange paint, you need a hint of pale blue!
