Colour Palettes

A couple of students have shown me a nice gadget on the web. Take a look at for some clever online applications including Toucan, a great little tool for creating colour palettes.

It's ideal for people who aren't that confident with putting colours together as you can use pre-designed rules for creating palettes of sympathetic colours. You can also import an image and use it to develop a colour palette. The results can be saved and/or printed for use in your projects. I recommend watching the video as there are lots of clever features you  need to know about.

I hope you enjoy playing with the rainbow!
