Instructions:
 This applet illustrates color mixing according to the additive RGB model (left) and the subtractive CMY model (right).
 RGB model: Use the sliders to the left to mix various quantities of the basic components, Red, Green and Blue. Observe how components add up to the black background and to each other by interactively dragging and superimposing the respective colored squares in the adjacent window. Note that each component ranges between 0 and 255 (coded by one byte, i.e., 8 bits); R=G=B=0 corresponds to black, R=G=B=255 corresponds to white.
 CMY model: Use the sliders to the right to mix various quantities of the basic components, Yellow, Cyan and Magenta. Observe how components are subtracted from the white background and from each other by interactively dragging and superimposing the respective colored squares in the adjacent window. Note that C=M=Y=0 corresponds to white, and C=M=Y=255 corresponds to black.
