I have two great options for a primary magenta, Quin Magenta (PR122) or Quin Rose (PV19), both of which are extremely bright but don’t get that dark. I like to have a way of making a dark version of each of my colors, but none of my usual ways of darkening magenta quite work for me.
- Adding blue makes it purple
- Adding green (the complement) makes a weird gray
- Adding earth orange makes crimson red
- I’m not a fan of the muddy mixes with black
Could a new pigment help?
