They would certainly get my business! Does anybody out there have any pull?
This is a real problem. I found that with some reds and blues, using cheap
(K-6) school temperas, adding a little white helps with the violet/purple
But, of course, as in all things, there is a bigger problem. Lack of
consistency in colors is difficult even when you are buying expensive
acrylics, oils and water colors. The name of a color from one manufacturer is
no guarantee that it is consistent across brands. So, I just figure that the
difficulties in color mixing are, once again, just preparation for the wacky
world that awaits them.
