Hi Scott,

I tried to mix a color using your new program but each time I was returned to the sign in screen which took me back to the original color choice screen.

Is this because I have a firewall and block cookies? Thanks

If you can use the forums, you should be able to use the palette. But to answer your questions, yes - blocking cookies would be a problem.

Thumbs up

Scott,

Thanks a million for putting the colormixer on the WC site. This is one "granny" that definitely appreciates the work you and the site membership have done here. I only found you about a week ago and I don't think I've ever spent so much time on a single site. I hope you'll be able to continue for a very long time to come.

It's probably not the place to do this, , but thanks to all the members who have contributed so much in the way of instructions and demos. My grandkids could use a few days on the site.

Thumbs up Virtual Palette

You have just solved a MAJOR PROBLEM FOR ME THANKSSSS.
I can now direct some of my potential clients (homeowners wanting faux treatments/murals) to this.. It will enable them to choose the specific colors right from home, instead of looking thru tons of chips and boards...You DONE GOOD

Hi, I love this. I was playing with it all morning.

But no yellow ochre or cadmium yellow? Those are the two yellows I use most often.

Yellow Ochre is there - at the bottom of the list. Will try to work in Cadmium Yellow in the next round of colors that I add.

Thanks all for the comments and feedback - glad you are finding this useful!

Cheers.
Scott

I've added Cad Yellow Light and Deep. Also, the FAQ has been updated.

Thank you, Scott... this has been an incredible amount of work. I am very impressed. It is an absolutely wonderful tool and I intend to check it out!

Thanks for the kind words, all. Again, its not perfect, but its the best thing out on the net right now.

Some stuff I plan to add:
  • The ability to email a formula to someone.
  • The ability to generate "links" to your mixtures. Useful if you'd like to post it in the forums to help illustrate something to a new artist, etc.
  • Color matching - so when you end up with a color, the system can tell you if there are any stock paints that are close to that hue/value/etc.
  • Ability to automatically calculate triadic complementaries, etc.

If you have suggestions for new features and colors, let me know.

Cheers.
Scott

color swatches on the menus?

hi scott,

great idea - great implementation!
one thing i was wondering about though: you've got all these great colors to mix, but they don't show up as swatches, until you've chosen one. it would be alot easier to choose a color from a list of swatches with their names.
is there a way to add swatches to the pulldown menus?
for beginners like me it would make it easier, since i don't know what all the different colors look like, without seeing them in front of me.

other than that - cool thing you did!

Good idea, dorith, but unfortunately, no. HTML won't allow you to put images into pulldown lists - sorry! I could, however, make a clickable "reference chart", that would popup a window showing the same information.

Question virtual canvass

HI, I'm new, so I probably will get stomped on. But, here's the thing. I cringe everytime I see complement, referring to colors, written as 'compliment,' referring to saying something nice about something. Especially if this site is used as a teaching tool, I think it important to set a good example.

O.K. I got that off my chest.
Now, what a fantastic idea and what a wonderful thing when you get the virtual palette going to the level you hope.
I continue to be amazed at what is happening on the internet. Thank you for your efforts.
Pixling.
