I've seen other color wheels that work with primary color balancing. The other color wheels are more expensive and work with the primary colors of red, blue, and yellow.
This product takes you further and truly enhances your view of color in a way that is not readily available. You can visually work within one color or spin your way around the wheel and find complimentary hues to the basic color you are working with. A primary color wheel will not do that!
Thank goodness I finally have a product to assist me when I am trying to decide what colors together or work work together. This is a product that I can easily cart around in my tote or handbag and match, match, match colors to my hearts content!
I have always picked colors for my layouts pretty randomly. Or I let whatever kit of the month coordinate my choices. This wheel actually makes color easy. You pick a key color and it tells you what colors will make the key color pop and what colors will calm it. Plus ever sinse my LSS closed, I have to buy my paper on line and it's hard to see what matches, this makes it easier.
This is a very useful tool. Obviously it would be great if it would match all papers but that is almost impossible. I match cardstock based on shade and color as closely as possible when using it. So far it has helped and my pages and cards turn out beautiful.
This is great for me. I am so bad at knowing what colors go together that I have given up on projects because finding the color is so overwhelming.
The Bazzill swatchbook has been a great help too.
