Compost Colored Paint

Does anyone know if there’s a color paint that can make dirt look like compost?

I’m trying to make it look like gem sky islands are part of my gardens but they only have dirt. I want to somehow make the sky island blend into the rest of the garden if possible?

Thanks! :smiley:

Lol use brown

maybe red + yello + orange

There is no such thing as a brown pigment though.

So compost has a pigmentation that goes a bit like a purplish brown. Since the blockheads palette doesn’t allow you to combine tertiaries and secondaries, you’d probably have to go for 322, 722 or 532. Personally, I think 322 offers the closest match.

322 - Red Black Black
722 - Purple Black Black
532 - Blue Red Black

Oh this is a really helpful chart, thank you so much! I’m surprised no one’s tried to make “fake” compost before lol

@Dreams I made the paint and this is my comparison. Actually: the darker one is the dirt :sweat_smile:

Edit: here’s a better picture
