Irene’s Useful Colour Chart for Choosing Colours

/, Tips & Techniques/Irene’s Useful Colour Chart for Choosing Colours

One of our members Irene sent us this Colour Chart she uses for matching colours on the paper. We thought we’d share her comments and the chart below to see if it is useful for other members. Irene explained:

Hi Colin and Steve,

Just thought I’d share my suggestion on choosing colours.

I have put together a copy of the colour chart and then cut the page into three strips so that all colours are right at the edge of the paper. Then I can hold this against the colour I’m trying to match and see how best to make up that colour. It may not be fool-proof but it certainly helps me.

Love the work – still get hours of pleasure from this hobby.


Please find the chart below:
