HUE, SHADE, TONE AND TINT

‘Hue’ means a colour, and ‘shade’, ‘tone’ and ‘tint’ ap­ply to vari­a­tions on that colour, adding black, grey or white to achieve spe­cific ef­fects. This info will help you find the right colours and make de­ci­sions on choos­ing colours for projects.

SHADE

Adding black to the orig­i­nal hue will give a rich, in­tense ap­pear­ance.

TONE

Add grey to the orig­i­nal hue for sub­tle, so­phis­ti­cated re­sults.

TINT

Adding white to the orig­i­nal hue will make a softer, pas­tel palette.
