Colour mixing for kids is easy to mix paints to make new colours. You can use the primary colours (red, blue, and yellow) plus black and white to get all of the colours of the rainbow. So why not make your wonderful picture now and upload it to our gallery for the whole world to see your talent!
To make a colour darker (this is called a shade of the original colour), add a small amount of black. If you add too much black, your colour will be almost black. Another way to darken a colour is to mix in some of the complementary colour (the opposite colour on a color wheel – see below). This produces a rich, dark colour (richer than just adding black). Some pairs of complementary colours are: blue/orange, green/red, yellow/purple, black/white.
So there you have it colour mixing for kids !
