Introduction: Color Wheel Puzzle

About: I am a passionate industrial designer that loves to create all kind of things. I also studied some semesters of Robotics at the university. I love learning and teaching as well. If you have any questions abo…

As a designer and artist I have always had a great fascination for colors and I love to use them whenever I can. I really like the color wheel and I had thought of one day buying a puzzle of it, however, I thought it could be much more fun to create my own one and also allow it to be assembled in different ways. Now that I have it finished, I think it serves a lot as an ornament for the living room table and that both adults and children will enjoy it. I hope you enjoy creating your own color wheel puzzle as I enjoyed doing mine.

Como diseñadora y artista siempre he tenido una gran fascinación por los colores y me encanta usarlos cada vez que puedo. Me gusta mucho el círculo cromático y había pensado en algún día comprar un rompecabezas de este, sin embargo pensé que podría ser mucho más divertido crear el mío propio y que además este permitiera ser ensamblado en diferentes formas. Ahora que lo tengo terminado pienso que sirve mucho como un adorno para la mesa de la sala y que tanto adultos como niños disfrutarán de él. Espero disfruten creando sus propios rompecabezas de círculo cromático como yo disfruté hacer el mío.

    Step 4: Mark and Cut the Balsa

    The next step was to cut the wood to get 2 squares that would fit the color wheel.

    El siguiente paso fue cortar la madera para sacar dos cuadrados en los que cupiera el círculo cromático.

    Step 5: Paste the Color Wheel

    Now, the chromatic circle is pasted on the wood, with a compass a circle is made around it and then cut.

    Ahora, se pega el círculo cromático sobre la madera, con un compás se hace un círculo alrededor de este y se corta.

    Step 6: Cut the Colors

    Time to cut every color of the wheel.
