Colour Circles

Colour circle A featuring the mixing colours mixed without white:

  • The mixing colours are shown on the circle at the position that corresponds with the following properties:
    • colour area: the colour area that corresponds with the mixing colour
    • the colour direction; more to the left or right of the colour area
    • saturation (cleaner or dirtier): further from or closer to the circle's centre
    • complementary colours are positioned opposite one another on the circle
    • complementary colours neutralize one another after they have been mixed and produce a greyish result

Colour circle B featuring the mixing colours mixed with white:

  • In principle, this is same as the first circle, but due to the mixture with white the position of the mixing colours on the circle has been adjusted.

Colour circle C featuring the mixing colours mixed with metallic:

  • Same as colour circles A and B with regard to: colour, colour direction and saturation.
  • In addition, flop 2 - the colour flop and depth flop - is also shown

Tilted colour circle featuring the (multi-)effect colours:

  • This tilted circle (flop 1 position) features all ‘multi-effect colours’ categorised according to main colour
  • The multiple colour effect of these mixing colours is indicated on the colour bar in the circle
  • When mixed, the complementarily positioned colours will produce a whitish result
  • This circle could be used for the purpose of adjusting the colour direction and for complementary colour shifts, but only in the case of multi-effect colours
