Grey paint

The perfect grey can be seen when equal proportions of the primary paint colours (red, blue and yellow) are mixed together

If there is a slight difference of proportions then a lower tone or eventually a taupe is created - see tone

When you mix different proportions of primary colours together you create TONES of that main primary colour.

These are often called greys or taupes.
