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

Mix a small amount of red and white paint together with a paint brush on a palette.
