Acrylic paint, one of the most commonly used types of paint for interior spaces and art projects, makes for a popular modern medium due to its versatility, quick drying time and ease of use. Most acrylic paints are also allergen-free and nontoxic, making them particularly ideal for children's projects.

Whether you want to create a neutral skin-toned hue for a painting, or you need a peachy shade for any other purpose, mixing specific coloured paints will create a peach paint colour.

Dip a paintbrush into the orange acrylic paint and place a dollop of the paint onto a blank space on a painter's palette. The orange paint makes up the majority of the peach colour, so use slightly less than the total amount of peach colour needed.

Dip the paintbrush into the red acrylic paint and add one-third the amount of orange paint used to the paint on the palette. Mix the colours together thoroughly.

Dip the paintbrush into the white acrylic paint and add one-third the amount of orange paint used to the paint mixture on the palette. Mix the colours together thoroughly. The white paint helps lighten the orange-red shade and create a peach colour.
