What Are Cream Colours?


  • White is one of the main components of cream. If you want a strong, very warm shade of cream, you would add dark brown to the paint mixture.

Pure Light Brown

  • Pure light brown is another crucial colour needed for cream’s. More pure light brown in a paint mixture makes the cream look more creamy and darker.

Bright Yellow

  • Bright yellow is the colour that you just need a few drops of, but the brightness of bright yellow helps give the cream colour its signature look. Without yellow, you would just have a cream shade.

Red Scarlet

  • Red scarlet is not a necessary paint colour to make cream, but it is another option for making your hand-mixed colour to have that pinky tone some creams can have.

There are many ways to make a cream, equal parts orange and bright yellow and keep adding white into the mix to make a golden yellow, going all the way down to a bright cream with the more white you add in to the mix.

Some times when mixing it’s the shade that can be out, this can be changed by mixing together 70% white with 30% black to gain a nice grey colour, the grey will change that mid tone shade make it blend in much better, but you don’t need a lot of the grey just a few drops, if it goes too mucky looking just add in more pure light brown to bring back the cream shades again.

Leather dyes are different to leather colours.
