How to Use Color;

In the 12 step color wheel, each primary, secondary and tertiary hue is at a level of full saturation, or brightness. This means there is no black, white, or gray added.

Color is described in terms of value, which is the lightness or darkness of a color, or the relative amount of white or black in a hue.

When white is added to any of the twelve colors a lighter value of the hue results and is called a tint. For example, pink is a tint of the primary color red.

When black or gray is added to a hue a darker value results and is known as a shade. A shade of red is burgundy.
