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.

Can be used for painting
By As a Watercolorist
from NN, Va
OK, I stopped buying watercolors that have products in them that are poisonous. Paint now only with Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Permanent Red Deep. I sometimes buy the standard 4 earth colors. They can be mixed from the three, CYM, just easier to have these premixed.WatercolorsMaimeri Blu: superior watercolours, Primary Blue - Cyan 400, Primary Red - Magenta 256, Primary Yellow 116, Permanent Red Deep 253.I don't paint in oil, but, try these, brand MaimeriPrimary Blue - Cyan Classico 400, Primary Red - Magenta 256, Primary Yellow 116Printers are CMY and black based, you seen anything they can't print? I find using CMY a lot easier to deal with when painting than the light based red, yellow, blue and trying to apply it to paper,canvas.
