MAKE YOUR OWN COLOUR WHEEL
Pull out your sheets printed with a bright colour wheel and discover your ideal colour combinations.
Your beautifully- designed colour wheel is a handy tool to generate colour inspiration, whether to jazz up your living space, or get the right look for your next project. It’s easy to use, and just the right size to slip into your bag. The wheel is split into warm, vibrant tones, and cool, soothing tones. Pick one, or spin the wheel for that element of serendipity… For a bold, energetic feel, go for two complementary colours opposite each other. For an understated mood, pick two or three shades next to each other.
It’s simple to put your colour wheel together. You’ll need to gather together the three pull- out sheets, scissors, a steel ruler and scalpel, a compass cutter, plate (optional), doublesided sticky tape and a split pin.
1. Cut out the front plate and inner apertures. Use a scalpel and steel ruler for the straight edges. Using a compass cutter, cut the curved aperture edges. Cut around a plate for the curves on the outer edge of the colour wheel. Make a hole in the centre (using the end of the scissors or a bradle).
2. Cut out the back plate, using a scalpel and metal ruler to get sharp lines. Take care to cut out the corner tabs. Make a hole in the centre, and fold the eight tabs inwards.
3. Using the centre point, use a compass cutter to cut out the centre circle of the colour wheel. Make a hole in the centre.
4. Layer the back plate, centre circle and front plate. Using strips of double-sided tape, stick the back plate tabs to the front plate. Push a split pin through the hole in the centre.
