Colour combinations & computer colour codes for crafters




colour guide

Pick your colours with confidence... 

 A good combination is using two colours opposite each other on the colour wheel, three colours equally spaced around the colour wheel,
or two pairs of colours (a total of four) opposite each other.

Primary colours (red, blue, and yellow) make a bold statement. Secondary colours (green, orange, and purple) can be engaging,

but they sometimes need to be shaded to work together.
Tertiary colours (blue-green, yellow-green, red-orange)
can combine for a very sophisticated look.

A monochromatic (one-colour) scheme can be interesting

if you use several shades of the same colour.

Colours that sit side by side on the wheel can be harmonious

when used together, e.g. red-orange and orange.

Combining a primary colour (red) with a secondary colour (purple)

can create an unexpectedly exciting match.
