INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Gather supplies. Print the color wheel template.
  2. Start your color wheel by first painting the three primary colors. Paint the top section the same width of your brush in Cadmium Red. Create the next tint by adding a touch of white and paint the next section. Continue adding white to make lighter tints until you've reached the middle of your color wheel.
  3. Complete the primary colors by repeating step two with Cadmium Yellow and Primary Cyan.
  4. Repeat step two with the secondary colors – Cadmium Orange, Yellow Green, and Dioxazine Purple.
  5. Repeat step two, this time with tertiary colors. To create tertiary colors mix a primary color with a secondary color. For example: mix Red with Orange to make Red Orange. Repeat this step creating the remainder of the tertiary colors – Yellow Orange, Yellow Green, Blue Green, Blue Violet, and Red Violet.
