Two additional terms you may see or hear are "Transparent" and "Opaque". Transparent color is color you can see through to the layers beneath. Often a glaze medium, water or other thinner is added to paint to make it transparent. Opaque paint is a solid paint that you cannot see through. Rather than mixing your paints with white or black, you can use a transparent glaze. Adding a white or black glaze over an opaque layer will affect the hue as will adding a colored glaze over top of an opaque white or black layer. This is something fun to experiment with whether painting a wall, painting an image on paper or canvas or painting on glass, fusing glass or even layering glass.
