This is a passable mix. Not perfect but if one needs to absolutely try to match with hardware store materials,here is another option.
The quality of the pigments is critical. Taigagrun, for example, has to have a "chrome yellow" or "bright yellow" or you get an army tent green.

My rustoleum.yellow, and green both seem to lack deep intensity....but yeah,.they were free.
