Even if your theory were correct, which it isn't, it would make more sense to say that magenta is a primary color, since cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) are the colors for printing, and red, green, and blue are the colors for light (RGB). But the supports aren't being run through a printer, so it doesn't matter.
restoca was correct. Paint color have a white base, with pigment added. The red pigment may be a combination of magenta and blue though. I'm not sure...I'm not a paintologist...I just know that red doesn't take less work to make because it's a primary color.
Anyway.....I can't wait to ride this red coaster and yellow, and sometimes tan, coaster
