    Blue Violet is deeper than Curelean Blue, I would use 3drops colbolt blue and 1 drop violet for the red violet I would use 2drops Megenta and 1 drop violet, I reckon that would be close,
    Both colour for me are used all the time in portraits, but the blue is a finishing tone shifter, the red violet is one of my most used colours, I would just buy a bottle of both :)

    Here's a sprayout I made when I got my set. Not the best sample due to the light but you can get an idea.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I'll see where they led me. Eventually I'll buy a bottle of each but that won't be for quite a while.

    IDK how well this translates to CI's versions of blue-violet and red-violet as i'm not sure they are as bright as they should be but,
    In theory;
    The red-violet done with violet and magenta should be able to replicate it. Assuming the violet is made from cyan and magenta.
    Using any blue aside from cyan to make the blue violet could get you the same hue but not the same chroma so it just wont be as bright as being made from cyan and magenta since those other blues are usually shades.
    Not technically correct on this graphic but it illustrates the idea.
    Those Blue violets, marked "pb" to the outside of the red line are not reachable without cyan.

    Cerulean, with bit of magenta and violet might bring you closest on the blue violet since its the closest shade of cyan you have??? Maybe...works in theory but thats assuming the manufacturers are trying pretty hard to make their colors true in relation to one another and not just whatever they feel like seems good.

    I love that particular set of charts.... theyre done with the colors at equal values so you achieve grey in the middle by mixing them all and get your secondaries with consistent amounts of the primaries. They also really helped me understand the potential chroma of each color being vastly different at different values and the reasons some colors are "weak" or "strong" in a mixture.

    The problem with most brands of airbrush paints is that it is not single pigment colours and they do not specify which pigments are used to mix those colours. That is why they have generic name like blue-violet and red-violet. This also means you can not use a proper mixing chart that say use 2 parts PV12 and 3 parts PR3 and you will get a reddish purple. So you can only try and guess.

    And then they apparently change them every few years without saying a word about it.
