17 Mar Thread Scheme – SCT003 DMC RYB Color Wheel
These thread scheme, again, is based on the Red-Yellow-Blue, or subtractive color scheme. It’s the basic color scheme out there, but a good one to have. The basics of how color harmonies work will be discussed using this color scheme, so you’ll see this one often. This scheme utilizes DMC 6-strand floss.
You’ll find that most of the thread scheme that I come up with, are based off of DMC. It’s got an incredible color range, but it’s also been around forever. The first floss I played around with were DMC. Also, there are lots of lists out there which color match to other companies, so once I give you a DMC number, you can translate it into many other lines.
For each of these thread schemes, or palettes, , I’ll include both an image showing how it was built (to the left), and a thread color scheme, with actual thread numbers, that you can print out. Feel free to save these cards, because you never know when you’ll need them.
Keep your eye out for more color schemes coming in the Simply Color series!
