To mix a brown you mix a primary with its complementary color, so purple and yellow; blue and orange; or red and green (See video tutorial of making brown color). There is a diverse amount of Brown in nature. This color can be mixed with any other color.


There are actually many ways to make brown, but the simplest is to combine all of the primary colors in equal proportions.

You’ll also want to have some opaque white on hand for tinting and to make adjustments if you want to make a lighter shade of brown.

This technique allows for optimal refinement and customization.

Before you get started, you’ll need the following tools:

  • Red, yellow, blue and opaque white acrylic paint
  • A palette
  • A palette knife
  • A paintbrush
  • A surface for testing colors
  • Water for rinsing the brush
  • Paper towels for cleaning the palette knife...
