The ever-popular CMY primary mixing wheel in pocket 5-1/8" diameter pocket size or the standard 7-3/4" diameter size illustrates how the color spectrum is arranged, how complementary colors mix with each other, how colors mix with black and white and color relationships and schemes.
The 26-page CMY primary workbook is a step-by-step guide on mixing colors and includes related exercises and challenges, a color-coded project for painting, color theory lessons and a list of recommended paints.
CMY Primary is a trademark.

Useful Color Circle for Print and Digital color theory
By Honoria, teaching artist
from Austin, TX
Comments about Create-A-Color Wheel CMY Primary Mixing Wheel:
I use the CMY color circle to teach color theory. The cool thing about the CMY color wheel is this: if you shift your view from the CMY subtractive primaries, you get an RGB color circle that fits basic color theory ideas for additive color. Thus, this CMY color wheel helps bridge the conceptual gap between additive and subtractive colors because students can clearly use the color circle to find time-honored, artist=tested, color relationships to select from in the many color pickers and swatches they are exposed to in digital tools offering "millions of colors".
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

great for mixing colors
from Bellingham WA
It's small but has everything I need. I wanted to learn more about color so that I am comfortable dealing with color and polymer clay. A small workbook came with it. I'm very happy with the product.
My wheel arrived as expected. It is a nice mixing wheel.

Not just for dyes
By Color Lover
The reviewer below who claimed that this color wheel is only useful for dyes is sadly misinformed. It is quite possible to use the CMY color wheel to mix oil paints and many artists do so, including me. The CMY color wheel is just another model to explore color theory, just as the RBY color wheel is a model of a color theory.I'm not sure why this person was unable to use this wheel for oil paint mixing. Maimeri makes a "Try Out Set" of the three primary colors in oils, cyan, magenta, and yellow, and you can produce what many artists consider a wider range of saturated colors in oils using this model. The CMY color wheel is a very useful tool for those wishing to explore this particular model of color theory.

Color wheel for every use
By Ambidextrous in Rupert
from Rupert, Idaho
I use this color wheel with my own paintings, done in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pencil or pastels. Complimentary colors are the same no matter what medium is used. Complimentary colors can be identified by staring at a color for one minute and then looking at a piece of white paper, which I have my students do to teach them about complimentaries. Afterwards I have them make simple one sided color wheels based on this color wheel, since it's so much faster than staring one minute at a time each time a complimentary is needed. Most students who see this wheel like the double side which shows tints and shades. They buy out my extras so that I'm constantly buying more of these wheels. This is an excellent tool to teach and learn about colors.
