Maybe some helps or at least a couple of tips ...
I mix in any color always some white *- usually titanium as well as some zinc white!
Also i mix in each color one of my mediums CREAMY - either "CREAMY" and/or "CREAMYcobra".
Then I give a lot of white middle "CREAMY +" & if I want to have more of that or 'buttery' then I gave extra/more CobraPaste.
And mix gently to *colors this WhiteMelange OR to do this when i paint AllaPrima & PleinAir with a brush and paint on the canvas ...
