msg= Hi Don, Send me a Zip of the RCW please. Yours is the first really useful colour wheel that I have found as it is good for photography as well as for paint. I'd like the zip so that it can be printed to A3 size for use as a teaching aid in a photography course in the UK.
Thanks in advance
Tom Merryweather

Tom, because of you're input I've added to the RCW-DVD. It now includes a printable 32"x32" RCW, a 11"x11", an 8"x8" RCW plus the original 5"x5" Real Color Wheel. Thanks!

Hooray! My 30 grams of Sennelier's Quinacridone Red, #679, for $55 w/ship arrived, 10-13-04. IT IS THE PERFECT TRANSPARENT MAGENTA, BAR NONE. It's Pigment Index Color Number is PR122. This is the dry pigment magenta you need for frescos. Other manufacture may clame to have it but only Sennelier does.

The perfect triad is:
Transparent Indian Yellow (warm yellow-brown) PY150 from Zecchi.
Or Transparent Indian Yellow (warm yellow-orange PG10F from Senopia, Oops, the color name/number was discontinued. Today, in 2009, the warm transparent Indian yellow can be found as PY153.
Transparent Indian yellow is also PY100, Tartrazine, for water based fresco, water colors and acrylic. You have to get the dry pigment and make your own medium, it's not in tubes yet, 12-31-2012. Make your own watercolors. RCWmakingPRIMARYwatercolor.htm
Transparent Quinacridone Red (neutral magenta) PR122 from Sennelier.
Transparent Phthalocyanine Blue (neutral cyan) PB15.3 from Senopia.
Keep this list as close to your heart as I do, it took testing over $2000 worth of pigments to find these gems. At the same time I got a great fresco complete palette.
