The Secret to a Beautiful Gray

A long time ago, I remembered struggling to make a gray color. Gray often can look flat and dull. I almost gave up, but then my cat, Cisco walked by. He was a beautiful warm gray color, just the gray I was after. So I experimented more with mixing colors to get this gray and finally came up with a recipe. Today, I want to share it with you. It has a surprising ingredient!

Have a look here.

“Cisco Gray” is one of the most popular Art2Life colors because it’s not your typical flat gray, which is made mainly from just black and white. Instead, it contains many colors; the more colors you add, the richer the gray becomes. Finally, you end up with a rich, warm gray that looks beautiful next to many other colors.

Do you have a favorite recipe for gray?

Let us know in the comments.

Have fun color mixing!
