So really all that is needed is Magenta
But if he is going to give you the key primary colors, might as well give you a true Cyan as well as a true Magenta. :D

It would be nice to get some primary colours in order to be able to mix any colour we want, especially with the sizes we get, it's much more feasible than with the small bottles from other suppliers. We'd need Cyan, Magenta, Yellow (already have that colour), Black and White.

I tried mixing other paint types with the DF paints and it didn't work very well. Have you tried any other products to mix?

I tried mixing the DF colors and it looks like that the current set has no color in it, that is magenta enough to give a whole color circle.

Using either Deep Lava or the Lava Orange only gives greyish colors (the mixed color between is the Deep Lava and Water Bubbles Blue is a bit purple, but it is really dark).

Extending the colors with a pure magenta color would complete the paint set and we would be able to mix any color we want.
