Color wheel - to help you mix shades

With the help of the double-sided color circle, you can find the perfect color pairs and new unique paint mixes for your home's color scheme or, for example, for designing color combinations of clothes and art

What is the color wheel?

A color wheel is a simple device that shows how colors behave when you add black, white, or some completely different shade to them. In other words, it allows you to quickly see which colors go together and you can see which colors are opposite colors or tone pairs.

The double-sided color wheel is versatile and easy to use. The texts in the color circle are in English. Read more about mixing colors on Frenchic Blogs.

How do you use the color wheel?

The color wheel has 12 segments - parts, each of which represents one color. The disc shows how the colors relate to each other, whether they are next to each other or diametrically opposite.

The two-sided color wheel contains three primary colors, red, yellow, and blue, and three secondary colors, green, orange, and violet (when two primary colors are mixed together, they form a secondary color).

The color wheel also has six tertiary colors, which are a mixture of primary and secondary colors. These are red-orange, yellow-orange, yellow-green, blue-green, blue-violet and red-violet.

Warm colors - reds, yellows and pinks - are on the other side. Cooler shades - blues, greens and purples - are on the opposite side of the circle.

Choose a color, for example green - then turn the inner wheel of the color circle and you will see what it looks like when you add red to the green you have chosen. Turn more and you can see how the green looks when you add yellow etc.

Turn the color wheel and look at the color green. Place the inner disc of the circle aligned with the green, and you will see three shades of green in the inner disc view: Shade, Tone and Tint - marked.

Shade: your chosen color + white

Tone: your chosen color + gray

Shade: the color of your choice + black

You can choose one main color, for example blue, and use different degrees of blue on the surfaces and in the interior, from very light, to bright, greenish blue and inky blue, depending on the room and the desired atmosphere.

Contrasting colors for the brave

A contrasting color scheme uses two colors from opposite sides of the color wheel.

Contrasting colors are also pleasing to the eye.

A good tip is to use different saturation levels of the color. We recommend using a lighter shade of one color and a darker shade of the other. For example: Green and pink. Use darker green and light pink together - Guaranteed working pair! Raspberry red and fuchsia are also suitable as spices for this combination. Finish the space with a light blue floor. Do you notice that the guarantee-safe combination is like straight from nature!

Green is now on the surface in interior design. You can naturally combine all shades of nature with green: blue, brown, terracotta, beige and black - as well as their varying degrees.

Combine green with a soft cream shade instead of white if you want soft tones.

Muistilista - näitä ainakin tarvitset, kun aloitat huonekalujen tai seinän maalauksen:

  1. Puhdistusaine, joka poistaa tehokkaasti likaa ja rasvaa. Sugar Soap on Frenchic-sarjan tehokas kalustepesuaine, joka on tarkoitettu huonekalujen ja muiden maalattavien pintojen puhdistukseen ennen maalausta.
  2. Laadukas sivellin tai tela. Tässä ei kannata säästää. Ovaalit Frenchic-siveltimet ovat aivan jotain muuta kuin tavanomaiset 'autotallisiveltimet' - Ihastut siveltimiimme varmasti! Lue hyvät vinkit siveltimen valintaan täältä.
  3. Hionta tai karhennustarvikkeet. Riippuen kalusteestasi ja tekniikastasi tarvitset hiontapaperia, tai kätevän, uudelleen käytettävän hiontasienen
  4. Maalia.  Jos et ole aikasemmin kokeillut Frenchic-sarjaa, aloita palkitusta Lazy Range-sarjasta.
  5. Myös kaikki muutkin Frenchic-maalisarjat sopivat huonekalujen maalaukseen tai seinien maalaukseen. Keraamisten laattojen maalaukseen sopii Al Fresco-sarja ja seinille huippulaadukas seinämaalimme Chalk Wall Paint.
  6. Tarvitset vielä ehkä vahaa, sabloonan, viimeistelypinnoitteen, metallipigmenttiä tai krakelointiainetta rippuen millaista maalaustekniikaa ajattelit toteuttaa.
  7. Muista myös laadukas teippi, jos teet rajauksia

 

    Vinkki! Jos olet innokas nikkari tai maalari ja teet paljon erilaisia DIY-projekteja, niin kaksi Frenchic-tuotetta ovat - 'must have'- tekevien DIY-ihmisten luottotuotteita, joita kannattaa aina olla omassa maalihyllyssä saatavilla kun tekemisen into iskee: Frenchic-vahat ja Finishing Coat. Nämä monipuoliset Frenchic-tuotteet sopivat hyvin erilaisiin maalaus- ja diy projekteihin. Ja tietysti valkoinen ja musta maali, joita voit käyttää omiin sävysekoituksiin, valitse esimerkiksi puhdas valkoinen Wedding Cake ja musta Loof.

    Pyrimme kaikin tavoin varmistamaan, että verkkokaupan sävyt vastaavat mahdollismman lähelle oikeita sävyjä, mutta sävyt voivat vaihdella eri laitteissa riippuen useista tekijöistä, kuten näytön asetuksista. Tämä tarkoittaa, että emme voi taata, että maalisävy vastaa täsmälleen sitä, mitä näet näytöllä.

    Suosittelemme aina kokeilemaan sävyä siinä tilassa ja pinnassa mihin sitä on ajateltu ennen suurempaa projektia - tilaa pieni purkki testailuun tai käy lähimmässä jälleenmyyjäliikkeessäsi katsomassa värejä itse.

    Huomioi myös, että varaat tarpeeksi maalia projektiisi:

    Pidä huoli, että varaat maalia tarpeeksi projektin loppuun viemiseksi. Alan normaali standardineuvo on, että jos tarvitset enemmän kuin yhden maalipurkin, varmista, että ne ovat samaa valmistuserää (batch numero) tai jos se ei ole mahdollista, sekoita maalierät ennen maalaamista yhtenäisen lopputuloksen varmistamiseksi. Maalin huolellinen sekoittaminen (pitkään ja pohjia myöden) on tärkeää oikean sävyn lopputulokseksi.
    Jos tarvitaan paikkamaalausta, suosittelemme koko alan maalausta pienen paikkamaalauksen sijasta, jotta korjaustyö olisi mahdollisimman huomaamaton.
