I want to try a lesson that calls for prussian blue and hookers green which I don't have. Does anyone have a suggestion for mixing or substitute?
Thanks
Denise

For starters, I just Googled and found some of these sites...

      http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_colors_do_you_mix_to_make_prussian_blue
      "Answer:  Phtalo Blue + middle red, or Phtalo Blue + a tint of black"

      http://www.wetcanvas.com/ArtSchool/Color/ColorTheory/Lesson11/index.html
(My guess: Hooker's green is transparent, hence I assume you may have to mix transparent colours.)

      http://www.watercolor-painting-tips.com/mixing-colors.html
      "When mixing colors Cobalt Blue Hue with Quinacridone Gold, the result is more like Hooker's Green.... "

You may find out more by Googling.

Good luck  & happy  :painting:
