That's what they taught you in elementary school, but it simply doesn't work. You will get at best a dull or dark purple. Magenta and cyan make purple when mixed in the right proportions. More magenta than cyan is needed. Paints labeled with these names are hard to come by, and especially with magenta there are a lot of variations. Cyan is known in paint as phthalo blue.
