paint formulas?

what colors are used to make black

Best Answer

Black is it's own color and you cannot mix it.

You can mix a color that is very, very dark and can "act" like black in a painting. Try:

Ultramarine blue and Alizarin crimson
Ultramarine blue and Burnt Umber
Viridian green and Alizarin crimson
Prussian blue and Burnt Sienna

just put in like green red in purple and if that doesnt work try more colors

A dull black can be made from soot,carbon black, boot black,and oil. It is not a mix of other colors.

about equal amounts of ultramarine blue and burnt umber. I teach painting and won't let my students buy black. Trust me, it makes a very nice black.

Iagree with Bleau

Mix equal amounts of a red, blue, and yellow and it will make a black. And yes, black can be made.
For best results, try:
Cadmium Yellow Medium and a cool red and ultramarine.
