This color wheel is based on the primaries of Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow. These are the primary colors used when mixing light. Dye is transparent and therefore mixes much like light. This color wheel is more useful for mixing dyes than opaque paints, so if you work a lot with dyes, this is the color mixing guide for you!
CMY Primary Mixing Wheel and Workbook were designed to:
Provide a guide for mixing color pigments.
Illustrate color relationships and schemes: Complements, split complements, tetrads and analogous colors.
Illustrate color contrasts: Complementary colors, tints, tones, and shades.
Note: Use this Color Wheel with dyes. For opaque pigment based products like paints, use The Artist's Color Wheel (#ACW) for more accurate results.
