One Step Color Mix to Make Teal

"Teal is a low-saturated color, a bluish-to dark medium, similar to medium blue and dark cyan. It can be created by mixing green with blue into a white base, or deepened as needed with a little bit of black or gray color. The complementary color of teal is coral. (Which was on the blog last week) The first recorded use of teal as a color name in English was in 1917."

As seen in the Pantone's Fall 2014 color palette, bright cobalt has a little bit more blue but I wanted to create a beautiful teal color to fit in with the fall fashions. 

Color Mix:
To create this One Step Paint mix, 
I combined 2 parts Cherbourg, 2 parts American Dream, 1 part Get in Gear and 1 part Black.
