In making experiments before an audience those persons in front should if possible be at least ten feet from the color wheel.
At this stage the color wheel or color top or both will be most valuable.
This is a very interesting point to be more fully illustrated by the help of a color wheel in Chapter V., paragraph 106.
Many of the experiments of the color wheel can be produced with a small toy called a Color Top, which is shown in Fig. 4.
With the thin paper disks of the color in the operation of the color wheel top this is an important matter.
Having thus shown how real tints and shades in nature are produced, the color wheel may be introduced with advantage.
|complementary color |
A secondary color that, when combined with the primary color whose wavelength it does not contain, produces white light. Thus yellow, which is produced by mixing the primary colors red and green, is the complementary color of blue. See Note at color.
