All about mixing the color Purple

- How do you make a light purple? Add a little Flake White or Zinc White, it will knock the chroma down a bit.

If you need a light, high-chroma purple start with the highest-chroma purple you can find (such as dioxazine violet), so the final result remains relatively chromatic.

-How do you make a dark purple? - add a dark transparent color that's close in value (Prussian Blue, or dark Pyrol Ruby or Aliz. Crimson) . All you have to do is adjust the chroma (if needed).
