Making My Color Wheel

Happy Make It Monday!

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Remember my post from a couple of weeks ago for “Random Tuesday?” Well, today I’m going to show you how I made my “Color Wheel” and the finished product. I’m getting super nervous about my test I’ll be taking in a couple of weeks. Hopefully, I’ll pass the first time around and won’t have to worry about it. Anyways, let’s get started with “Making My Color Wheel…”

Step #1:

Step #2:

Step #3:

Using my ecoline watercolors I painted each ‘piece of pizza’ a different color. I used my blue, yellow and tint of red (pink) for my primary colors while using purple, green and orange as my secondary colors.

With my watercolors dry, I carefully used my fingers to rub off my masking liquid. Though, as you can see, most of it came off along with the pencil outline.

Step #5:

I then, to separate the two types of colors, ‘erased’ the secondary colors to allow just the primary colors to show.
