Color mixing is difficult

I painted some more parts today. As I plan to alternate the color scheme a little bit, I painted the blue parts black and the purple parts in a grayish gun metal blue green with a hint of purple. The color didn't really turn out the way I intended to, but it doesn't look bad. I mixed Royal Blue, Gun Metal, some Purple, a bit Black and a bit White (all Tamiya acryls). It turned out like a dark blue/gray with a bit metallic effect.
Up next are the gray and the pink parts and I'm done with the main coloring.
After that i will do some sumire in a light brownish color and I plan some subtle weathering.
... We'll see how that turns out.

Color mixing is kinda fun though. But often messy.
