Create mustard yellow paint by mixing primary colors together.

Mustard describes both a shade of yellow and the condiment applied to hamburgers and hot dogs. Yellow is a warm color that stimulates and soothes and adding a mustard hue only enhances this property. You can create the perfect shade of yellow to complete your project using the three primary colors. Mixing paints is something every artist needs to learn how to do to expand creativity and create a variable work space.
