Pantone has a magenta ink, C=0, Y=0, M=100% K=0 used to print their Pantone Process Color System Guide. This ink matches the magenta color ink that I print with on my giclee printer. This is the same color on my Real Color Wheel that matches water colors, acrylics and oil paints. This color is Color Index Number PR:122. The paint I first found perfect was from Liquitex, back when it was still called by them Acra Violet, it's been called Magenta now for a long time. Back then the only transparent yellow was from Old Holland as an oil paint. I guess the first acrylic transparent yellow paint was my own. I got the best Indian Yellow color match from a pigment dealer in Florence and made it.

Pencils and Pastels and crayons need pressure, lighter colors are not generally made using less pressure, it takes another pencil color. Magenta, PR:122 is Prismacolor's #995 Malberry. This is a full hue magenta that in watercolors would be thinned down to make pink. In pencil use #994 called Process Red as the lighter tint of magenta. Both make good darks with green. Put the green down first and last.

Prismacolor 1003 Spanish Orange is a dual-toned pencil. Light rubbing with is will give a lighter hue of yellow. It shows up more with an alcohol wash.
