## What does green and red colors make?

Visible light ranges from about 4,000 angstroms to 7,000 angstroms. In fact, the colors that make up visible light, like red, blue and green, and their complements violet, yellow, and orange, also have their own ranges of wavelength.

## How do you make a shade of a color?

In color theory, a tint is the mixture of a color with white, which increases lightness, while a shade with black, which reduces lightness. A tone is produced either by the mixture of a color with grey, or by both tinting and shading.
