Color Wheel Clock

I wanted this project to be relevant in my workspace as all to often I get carried away with color and end up making mud! This clock will be a constant reminder of the color wheel and the colors that go together and those that don’t!

The dial is the pure color and tint. A tint is pure color mixed with white. The numeral ring is done in grey, because grey mixed with a color creates a tone. The base is black, because black mixed with color creates a shade.
