How to mix Pink

I am often asked about Pink. Each red produces brighter, duller, warmer or cooler pinks depending on how they are used. 

Mixing pink with acrylic paint

For example, "hot" pinks are best achieved by using glazing techniques with translucent, bluish reds like Quinacridone Red or Magenta lightened with translucent Zinc White over a white background. Duller, peachy pinks can be achieved by adding Titanium White to warmer, orange-shade reds like Naphthol Light Red. Cadmium Reds produce earthier, desaturated pinks when lightened with white, or diluted in a glaze over a white background. Cadmium Medium Red produces a pink that is orangier, and Cadmium Dark Red produces a pink that is slightly bluer.
