Color Mix: Tick Tock + American Dream

Blue is the color of light between violet and green on the visible spectrum. Hues of blue include indigo and ultramarine, closer to violet; pure blue, without any mixture of other colors; Cyan, which is midway on the spectrum between blue and green, and the other blue-greens turquoiseteal, and aquamarine.
Blues also vary in shade or tint; darker shades of blue contain black or grey, while lighter tints contain white. Darker shades of blue include ultramarinecobalt bluenavy blue, and Prussian blue; while lighter tints include sky blueazure, and Egyptian blue
Blue pigments were originally made from minerals such as lapis lazulicobalt and azurite, and blue dyes were made from plants; usually woad in Europe, and Indigofera tinctoria, or True indigo, in Asia and Africa. Today most blue pigments and dyes are made by a chemical process.

For this mixture, I wanted to create a beautiful Cobalt Blue using two of the other blue hues of One Step Paint®.
