I want to share with you a few colour creation tools that I think are pretty crafty. I have not used all of them, but I have read some reviews and after checking them out, I am looking forward to making a comparison.

Example using Sherwin-Williams (paint colours) website:
The possible uses for these tools are wonderful and are really great time savers. They are great web design and graphic tools and can even be used as a decorator's tool. Some of you may already be aware of these websites and may even have a few that you can suggest.
