I finally got a CMY color wheel from Margie Deeb. I have had a regular color wheel for a while. This is the one we all used in primary school. Red, Yellow, Blue. However, that wasn’t matching the bead colors very well. Margie’s wheel is a much better fit to the beads. This makes sense when you look at the explanation on wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CMYK In the old color wheel, the combination of all colors is white. In CMY, the combination of all colors is black. This is much more similar to layering glass beads one on top of the other.
If you’d like good examples of CMY color schemes, check out Margie’s blog http://colorforbeadartists.com especially http://colorforbeadartists.com/2008/10/08/the-colors-of-apple/
When you look at those posts, I’m sure you’ll want one too. You can get them at
