A question, to mix a true Hot Pink colour, is it simply a case of adding white to red, or as in the colour mixing video, do you need to mix some orange and then white?

This is the kind of colour I am referring to:

The colour of that triangle looks very close to Magenta to me

Thanks for the ideas guys. I had actualy bought at tub of Matisse (I've bought a range of their colours in the Structure series) Magenta that I forgot I bought.

Now that I've checked it, it is too dark straight out of the jar.

One of the sites specifically says Magenta + white to tone it down.

So that's the course I will try first I guess.

I would also use either magenta or even Rose Madder, some Alizarin Crimson brands will also give a good pink
