Pigments for the Real Color Wheel

This is how the dots on the 36RCW colorwheel work.

The clickable pigment chip Real Color Wheel map below shows true opposition pigment colors
for mixing neutral darks and shadow colors.

The Red-Yellow-Blue primary color wheel was always inaccurate.
Red in pigments is not the opposite of green, it is opposite cyan.
The primaries of pigment are the secondaries of light,
red is a primary of light, magenta is the primary in pigments.

How the Real Color Wheel and the dots work? The dots represent tubed pigments as listed on the back.

36RCW = Real Color Wheel
36RCW = 3,6,12,24,36,360 colors available.
36RCW#1 = The entire first 10 wedge of color, yellow.
36RCW#1.0 = Pure opaque colors or a 50% tint of the darker mass colors.
36RCW#1.01 = Tinted colors from 01 to 10
36RCW1.01.5 = Number 5 is the middle of the cool to warm scale in each 10 wedge, warmth or coolness is dependent on the color wedge next to it.

36RCW#1.0.1 Cadmium Yellow Lemon Opaque is the first and coolest yellow in the yellow wedge of color.
36RCW#1.0.9 is the warmest yellow in the yellow wedge, a tint of Indian yellow transparent.
RCW36#1.0 is the pure Yellow arc with 10 graduated value blocks getting darker below it.
RCW36#1.0, yellow, has five different pigment color values located in it. 00, 0, 3, 6 and 10.
Brown is the darkest intensity of Yellow-greens, yellows and reds. Mix this low intensity brown with it's opposite color Ultramarine blue for a neutral dark.
