When I taught color theory in the past, I always liked to use Chromacryll,
because, altho they are more costly, the color mixing was always right on
and never muddy. Perhaps by now there are some other paints on the market
with the same properties, at a more competitive price. Chromacryll is also
washable, and can be thinned and used as a wash, as well as in it's regular
state. Of course, this doesn't help with your current problem, just my 2
cents worth for future consideration.
Good luck!
