The value of a color refers to how light or dark the color is, and it is easy to change the value of any color you like. If you find yourself with a shade of green that isn't as dark as you want, there is no need to return to the paint store; adjust the color yourself.
Things You'll Need
- Green paint
- Black paint
- Paint palette
- Paint brush or mixing stick
Place the amount of green paint needed for your project on a paint palette.
Add a small amount of black paint to the green and mix thoroughly with a paint brush or mixing stick. Your green paint will become darker.
Add more black paint and mix thoroughly again until you reach the desired shade.
