How to Make Hot Pink With Colored Acrylics


Making hot pink from colored acrylics is not an easy task. The easiest way to get hot pink is to go buy the color hot pink from a craft or art supplies store. But say you are in the middle of a project and you want to try to figure out how to make hot pink with what you have on hand without having to go to the store.

Things You'll Need

  • Paint brush
  • Palette
  • Red acrylic paint
  • White acrylic paint
  • Yellow acrylic paint
  • Blue acrylic paint
  • Pink acrylic paint
  • Orange acrylic paint (optional)
  • Mix a small amount of red and white paint together with a paint brush on a palette.

  • Add a touch of yellow paint and blue paint.

  • Adjust the shade by adding more of each color until you get the desired color.

  • Layer the paints as an alternative. Paint a layer with a very bright shade such as yellow or orange. Let it dry a little then add a layer of pink.

Tips & Warnings

  • Experiment with a very small amount of paint so as not to be wasteful. It may take a lot of trial and error to get the right combination.
  • Making hot pink can be done, but it may not look as iridescent as the hot pink made by a paint manufacturer.
