How to make salmon color

How to make salmon color

Fortunately, making salmon color is pretty simple. Of course, we can buy it ready-made, by choosing the shade of salmon we want, whether it is a pastel shade of salmon or strong, and we avoid it ourselves.

But if you want to do it, completely to your liking, below you can see how to make salmon color:

A white stain is needed on white until white takes on a very delicate shade of pink.

When we get a pink tone, we have to add yellow. We will do it very, very slowly; drop by drop, until we see the pink tone turn to orange-pink.

This is how standard salmon is made.

If we later want a salmon tone with a certain pigmentation or direct it towards the spectrum with a different shade, we will need other colors. For example:

Suppose you want to make a strong and warm shade of salmon.

So, you would first have to make the standard salmon color we just saw, and then you would add a few drops (until you achieve the desired shade) of ocher color.

And if we want stronger, instead of ocher, we can use brown.

Of course, as soon as we get over the paint, the paint will spoil and we will have to start over.

When we make paint with paints or colors, we have to add them very little by little.

A few drops of paint are added and the paint is well removed. We look at it and see if it needs more, and so little by little, until we achieve the desired color.
