      Hello, do you have any formulas to mix Chinese colour paints? Is there any popular ways in China to make new colours by mixing those common colours? For example, mix light yellow and blue, we can get green.

      Yes, there are some common practices to mix colours. I made some examples for your reference. Later, inkston will write some articles on this subject.

      The last colour of each colour row is the result of mixing the colours on left hand of it. Some colours are mixed with two colours, some are three, and others are four or even five.
