How to Mix Electric Blue Paint Tutorial

Save

Electric blue is the color of blue neon signs. It is a mixture of cyan and white, but is most easily achieved using a fluorescent blue paint and pearlescent white paint for a more metallic color. The color is also known as ice blue. This tutorial assumes you are using acrylic paint, though most paints will mix in similar ways.

Things You'll Need

  • Cyan or fluorescent blue paint
  • White or pearlescent white paint
  • Paper cup or bowl
  • Mixing stick
  • Put cyan or fluorescent blue paint in the paper cup.

  • Add an equal amount of white paint to the cup. Mix.

  • Add more white paint to the cup in small amounts until the shade of blue matches what you want.

  • Mix the color with the mixing stick until the color is even.
