Abstract

A model of the Munsell color solid has been constructed. It differs from the models of a psychological color solid described by Nickerson and Newhall in that the value planes are thin sheets of transparent Lucite acrylic resin spaced apart from one another. This allows small transparent colored samples to be placed on the model at approximately their correct color coordinates. A similar model has been constructed on the CIE system.
