    Color Wheel

    Acrylic: The 12 hues of the color wheel based on acrylic paint, each having an additional 2 tints(hue+white), 2 tones(hue+grey), and 2 shades(hue+black). Making a total of 84 shades out of the 5 basic acrylic colors (cyan,magenta, yellow, white, black) This is an excellent way to become familiar with the opacity of lighter colors, concentration of deeper colors, and how to mix just about every color.  Now, how to display all 84 of these in a fun design. Below are some drafts and the final design.
