Loriae4,

 

Your pink paint is almost certainly made from a full bodied white paint. Whereas it may certainly be darkened  somewhat, because of all the white pigment in the paint, you would never be able to obtain a maroon. You just cannot overcome all that white pigment! Even a "mid-tone base" would still have too much white pigment in it.

 

Hope this has helped you understand the problem.
