Thank you, but PLEASE remove my e-mail addy from the post.

There are bots that scan forums looking for such things, and once harvested, they are then sold to more SPAM lists than there are colors and shades on the RCW!!!

THANKS!

RGB is digital, the RCW is both digital RGB and printable CYMK.

The center most color is it's darkest color, 10% of the pure color.
There is a ring of pure color matching the "0" ring just before the black center, that's just for information.

A grayscale can be any number of divisions from white to black. 10 is standard.
The RCW outside ring "00" is a tint, the large 2nd ring "0" is the pure color, below it there are 10 shade colors. The 11th ring next to the center black is only a decrative ring matching the section color.

Are there additional grayscale values not presented in the RCW? The outermost 2 rings of the RCW are not clearly defined/explained. I assume the larger ring is again the “pure” colors, as they appear to match the innermost ring before black. But, what is the purpose of the outermost ring, and what percentage of white is added to the pure color ring next to it, in order to achieve that value?

The outermost ring "00" is a 50% tint of the "0" ring.

Yes, it's just too much info to put on one chart. Each of the 10 shades would have 10 tints to white also.

The tint ring is 50% lighter.
