It was too 6-6-500, then I've decided to 1009 it with more color, but it became too 54-1-500.

What could be it?

I think 'too' might become '2' – Beastly Gerbil Jan 23 at 11:35
@Daedric it looks okay to me, but if you think it needs a fix, be my guest. – Oray Jan 23 at 16:18
Sorry no offense, i'd really need to know the answer / what you're saying; to edit it properly. – Daedric Jan 23 at 16:21
@Oray: My edit is actually empty. I tried to change the [history] tag to [historical], but they are handled as synonymes. – Gamow Mar 11 at 15:58

Partial answer:

If we convert the numbers to Roman numerals, we get that 6-6-500 is "VIVID", 1009 is "MIX" and 54-1-500 is "LIVID". So the first sentence becomes

"It was too vivid, then I've decided to mix it with more color, but it became too livid."

So one guess could be that it is paint! – SpiritFryer Jan 24 at 2:03

I think it is


based on the partial answer

red is a color which is vivid, then I mix it with blue to get a livid color, which is purple
