Unlike traditional colour wheels, the ones for this pack have been specifically designed to show you what colours will be made if you combine the colours in this pack including if you add White, Black or De-saturate the colours by adding the opposite colour on the wheel.
The wheels are incredibly simple to follow, you will see numbers on the outer edge of the wheel and they revolve in a clockwise direction.
The first number is the primary colour and is the number of drops required, the second number is the next Pure colour clockwise from the current colour and again is the number of drops required.
To access the colours moving inwards towards the centre of the wheel, you add the third colour which will be dependent on the wheel, for example, the de-saturated wheel would ask you to add the colour directly opposite the segment you're on.
So for example a 5,5 Pure Red and Pure Yellow addition would ask you to add Pure Warm Blue, a 6,4 addition of the same colours would ask you to add Pure Yellow.
The amount you add depends how far the colour is inside the wheel, the outer edge is 0 drops of colour while the very centre is a full 10 drops, there are 11 vertical segments in each slice
At the bottom of this page, you'll find our 2021 Linear Swatch cards that have been designed for this pack to give a better overview of what can be achieved.
