adding magenta and yellow dyes makes what color?
At first i thought it was red. but when I realized we are adding dye's not light im thinking its black.. but im not sure! please help!
You are thinking too hard.
If mixing pigments, magenta plus yellow absorbs all colors except red, so it appears red.
I recently had a lot of fun repainting my beehives (after 30 years of faded yellow). I went to Sherwin Williams, bought a gallon of white, and then bought 3oz of blue, magneta, and gold (yellow fades). Want red? for me it was magneta + "gold".
Because I mixed a cup of paint at a time, I have many, many colorful beehives.
