Hot Pink Hibiscus image by Mary Beth Granger from

Making hot pink from coloured acrylics is not an easy task. The easiest way to get hot pink is to go buy the colour hot pink from a craft or art supplies store. But say you are in the middle of a project and you want to try to figure out how to make hot pink with what you have on hand without having to go to the store.

Mix a small amount of red and white paint together with a paint brush on a palette.

Add a touch of yellow paint and blue paint.

Adjust the shade by adding more of each colour until you get the desired colour.

Layer the paints as an alternative. Paint a layer with a very bright shade such as yellow or orange. Let it dry a little then add a layer of pink.
