How do you pronounce mauve?
The color mauve is pronounced mov with a short o. It can also be pronounce mov with a long o.
Maeve is of Celtic origin and is pronounced Mave, with a long a. I believe that how you have said to pronounce Maeve is a bit wrong and may lead people not knowing how to pronounce it correctly. I would more explain it as it is May-V. That is just my opinion on it. Also for anyone out there, not under any circumstances is Maeve ever Mauve or Meeve or any other weirdo way you…
If you are going to use pink and purple to made mauve, you have to experiment. No one can tell you the ratio as the amounts of each color depend upon the shade of mauve you are trying to make. You can start by mixing a very small amount of purple into the pink, testing it, and then adjusting it. This may take several tries.
