What colors make brown?

Mix equal proportions of red and green to make brown.

If you want it more of a reddish hue such as "burnt sienna", then add more of the red.

Here's a tip : use the darkest red (like alizarin crimson) and the darkest green (like Sap Green).

Another mixing solution

You must mix varying proportions of all three primary colors, red, blue and yellow, to get brown. Depending on the ratio of the three colors, you can vary the brown from a reddish brown to an orange brown, blueish and purplish brown. When adding white to the brown you have made, you will get the corresponding light brown or tan.

Arts and Crafts

How do you fade colors with a colored pencil?

To achieve a fade, start by practicing on a blank piece of paper, you will need to master the technique first, as it is the only way to gauge how much distance the colour will travel. Better to become familiar with a technique elsewhere than risk ruining a piece you have been working on.

To fade a single colour out to white - start with an intense application of your colour (at the center of your page) and as you more away from the center apply less and less pressure on your pencil until you are just barely touching the surface of the ground (paper).

Using a stump of other blending tool, draw out from the center (or most intense colour) toward the blank ground. You will be drawing the stump past the edge of the area you have coloured. Continue doing this over the entire area until the colour is no longer transferred from the stump to the ground. This should result in a good fade from colour to white.

To fade one colour into another, once again practice on a blank piece of paper (in a horizontal or landscape orientation). Place a circle of one colour on the left and one on the right.

If you are fading two primary colours together start very small. Following the instructions above work outward, decreasing the pressure on your pencil as you go. You will want to bring each colour past the center line, in such a manner as to have the two primary colours overlapping in the middle of the page.

When you start using your blending tool remember to use a different one for each colour as you do not want to "muddy" one with the other. Continue pulling colour toward the center of the page and then using a third blending tool, merge the two colours.

Symbolism and Symbolic Meanings

Why is black colour associated with evil and white with divinity?

The dark color is associated with the mysterious dark void of the unseen unknown similar to the human ignorance and fear to palisade in one's own convictions to reject the Truth which in religious doctrines was considered evil.Black color was used in pagan rituals/witchcraft to create fear experienced by ignorant people in unexplained phenomenons eg: lunar & solar eclipses-night etc. Biblical and many religious scripture have described evil as dark.Both oral & written literature have described evil as dark eg: Milton-'Paradise Lost'.

Darkness is dispelled by light where humans visualize as Truth and associate it with knowledge and divine element.The color white therefore is associated with purity & divinity.

These ideas are strongly culturally bound. Keep in mind phrases like "in the black", meaning doing ok with regard to money; not in debt (in the red). Also, in some cultures, white is the color of death. Black is a strong and fashionable color. For women who can wear it, few colors are as stunning. Keep culturally bound assumptions in mind, and keep them in check. There is nothing inherent in any color that indicates or suggests goodness or evil. Think of them and use them figuratively, but keep your wits about you.

Celtic History

How did Picts make blue war paint?

The ancients made a very good blue dye from the plant woad.

To achieve the dye, the aerial parts (above ground: leaves, flowers and stems) of the plant were finely chopped and packed tightly into a wide mouthed container.

Boiling water was added until the plant material was completely covered and the container was set aside for about an hour. Then the infusion (liquid) was strained off.

At this point lye was added and the mixture was beaten with a whisk or similar implement for about fifteen minutes or so and the mixture would have been set aside to settle.

Every day or so, any of the clear or very pale liquid that rose to the surface was poured off, until the remaining liquid was very thick and very dark.

This concentrated liquid was poured into a wide pan and slowly evaporated off.

The resulting dye was a dark blue powder that was usually mixed with animal fat to make a blue body paint.

Please NOTE This process was messy and the dye was permanent, so those making the dye carried the stains for quite a while.

What matches slate grey?

Only another slate grey from the same dye lot will match a slate grey. Take it from one who has had a horrible (an expensive) experience in trying to match greys. Go with a contrasting color and don't try to match it. Slate grey is a great color and can take just about any other color as a contrast.

What color goes with green?

The color yellow can look very good with green. ( i would disagree with this personally because green and yellow will make you look like a Norwich city football supporter, unless you are one. But that is just my opinion.)

If it's an olive green, believe it or not, a dark purple will work (if you put olive and say, plum or eggplant next to one another it actually looks nice - I didn't believe it 'til I saw it!)

The color pink also goes with olive green.

white or yellow color will be awesome with green .

Black goes well with every color, especially dark green.

You can also wear turquoise or blue color depending on the green or maybe a creamy beige

Light blue might be OK with green, for they match so peacefully in nature. White is OK as well.
