Be a Color Expert!
All you need are the Rainbow Color Selector tools for professionally combining and contrasting colors to get the most amazing results in graphics, fashion, decor and product design.
What makes the Rainbow Tonal Color Selector so great?
It’s a tool creatives can’t live without! They use this tool when planning photography shoots, painted and mixed media projects, graphic layouts, ceramic projects, fashion art, fabric for a quilt, yarn for knit or crochet projects, beads for jewelry, paper crafts, dyeing textiles, color schemes for the home, and even clothes for a great outfit!
Even for the professional decorator or stylist, color coordination is sometimes difficult. When you have to choose a color that coordinates with another color, but you are stumped for a sound color direction, the Rainbow Color Selector is the perfect solution!
If you already have the RAINBOW COLOR SELECTOR in PRIMARY COLORS, you will definitely want the RAINBOW TONAL COLOR SELECTOR to complete the set and be a Color Expert for any project you plan.
This is a TONAL wheel using tonal primary, secondary, complimentary, tertiary tiers, split-compliment, rectangular and square tetrad, analogous and monochromatic for combining and contrasting colors to get the best look.
The very detailed instructions include how to successfully use the Color Selector, basic color theory to help you understand what you're seeing, and why various colors and hues match, contrast or simply don't work together.
Easy enough for beginners, and comprehensive enough for advanced users.

For this Tiered Tassel project, I used the Rainbow Tonal Color Selector to select colors of yarn that coordinated together for a perfect match.
(Click over to the Tiered Tassel to find the complete How-To tutorial.)
I used a Split Compliment color scheme to make my tassel. As you can see, I placed the wheel over the yarns and pulled them through the windows and rotated the color wheel to match the arrows that combine in the triangle on the wheel. The Split Compliment graphics are in gold. The jade, chartreuse and purple colors of yarn for my tassel compliment beautifully to create a Split Compliment.
When you turn the wheel over, there are diagrams with all the different color combinations for a quick and easy reference.
Each Rainbow Tonal Color Selector comes with a comprehensive guide for a quick education on color selection, based on proven principles of balance and harmony. The sequence of colors on a color wheel isn't accidental; it is based on the order in which color appears in the spectrum of light from the shortest wavelength to the longest. When those colors are arranged in a circle, they make a color wheel.
