The NCS Colour Centre presents a workshop based on the same NCS course exercises used by BASF for automotive refinishers plus a few additional exercises for the commercial application of colour measurement.
The course aims at giving a basic knowledge about colour as visual phenomena. A thorough explanation of the Natural Colour System theoretically together with a series of exercises will be covered. An internationally recognised certificate of completion is awarded to each student.
NCS Colour Centre to provide course material & mask, exercise photocopy provided on 160g paper plus the black course folder. Customer to provide glue stick and pencil. Included with the course is the NCS Index 1950 value R2400 and NCS Colourpin II value R1950 – this forms an essential part of the course as students will need to check each colour sample before gluing down. Advantage of the Colourpin is it will form part of the students later work, it has the full 1950 NCS standard colours plus RAL. Plus certain Colourant suppliers in South Africa have added more colours to cover the tint-able colour space. The Colourpin also gives the student the ability to apply the learning with their own companies colour collection.
Price per student is R6800.00.
Course in students own time.
INTRODUCTION TO COLOUR
Presentation on colour development, how to sell colour and colour psychology.
1.1 HUE DIFFERENCE - Colour Matchers
Trains the ability to observe and analyze small differences in colour hue and leads to the discovery of the four elementary attributes of yellowness, redness, blueness and greenness.
1.2 NUANCE DIFFERENCE
Trains the ability to observe and analyze small differences in nuance and leads to the discovery of the elementary attributes of whiteness, blackness and chromaticness. 1.2 Nuance is supplied in red & green.
1.3 ELEMENTARY COLOURS & ATTRIBUTES
Shows the six elementary colours and a number of colours close to each of these. Trains the ability to estimate the main and subsidiary attributes.
2.1 COLOUR CIRCLE
Trains the ability to estimate the hues of colours and arrange the samples in a colour circle. The exercise includes samples in three characteristic nuance groups where the chromaticness, whiteness and blackness dominate.
2.2 COLOUR TRIANGLE
Trains the ability to estimate the nuance of colours, i.e. their whiteness, blackness and chromaticness and arrange them in a colour triangle. The triangles are supplied in yellow, red, blue & green.
5.3 SIMULTANEOUS CONTRAST – HUE, NUANCE
2.3 1-4 TRAINING IN COLOUR ANALYSIS
SUMMARY OF HOW NCS WORKS COLOUR MATCHERS
A brief summary of how colour works with reference to 1.1 Hue difference – the 4 chromatic elementary colours, 1.2 Nuance difference – one hue different Nuance, 1.3 Elementary colours and attributes – referring to the NCS Colour Space. Then how the notation works for colour measurement.
