Painters.....please help me. I am taking a colour theory course currently and we are mixing chromatic greys. How do I do this?? It always ends up some kind of brown or green mud. It looks awful and nothing like it should. We are using liquitex acrylic paint on Bristol board (shit).

to make grey look grey, saturate it very slightly with the opposite color of the color it is painted in. sort of giving it inverse temperature. let me demonstrate.

Don't try neutralizing from a pure colour. Instead bust out the Ivory & Titanium and mix that to your value, then add in a small amount of the neutralized colour.

Apart from that make sure you are using the exact complement. I don't know, I've seen painters just grab a random green and start mixing it with a Cadmium Hue expecting it to work.

Mud is a bitch.
