 Colour Mixing

Here is a subject that is something all should know.  Incredible colours achieved by mixing just a few. Save many many dollars and stop giving money to art stores - mix your own colours. Faster, easier and you will be so pleased with what can be achieved.  You will find that just by mixing a few colours you will be able to achieve almost every colour you would wish to buy at a store and be amazed at what can be achieved.
