The basic color matching rules

It’s necessary to mix the inks of different color together to get the specified color according to the clients’ requirement. And we define this method as toning. We have to mention two processing methods of toning here. One is adding transparent thinner (varnish) in various proportions into the original ink to get various kinds of light tones, with this method, only the color luminosity is changed and the hue is kept the same. Another is mixing the ink with white ink in various proportions. The color saturation is changed through this method, but the hue still remains unchanged.

The basic law of mixing the inks of three primary colors:
Magenta + Blue = Purple ( Purplish red comes out when Magenta is more than Blue, conversely, blue-violet is created )
Magenta + Yellow = red ( salmon pink comes out  when Magenta is more than yellow, on the contrary, Chinese red is created )
 Blue + Yellow = Green ( dark green comes out when Blue is more than Yellow, conversely, grass green is created )
Magenta + Yellow + Blue = Black ( Filemot comes out when Magenta is more than Yellow and Yellow is more than Blue as well; Lemon is created when Blue is more than Magenta and Yellow is more than Yellow at the same time; and we get Olivia if Blue is more than Yellow and Yellow is more than Magenta as well )

We should note that Magenta + Yellow + Blue = Black is only theoretically true. In practical, we only get dark grey when we mix Magenta, Yellow and Blue in some proportions, and the color is greatly different from the real black.
