That's RedPlusBlue: Nameless Paint Hues Encourage Children To Think Differently About Colors

Nameless Paints are the brainchild of Japanese designers Yusuke Imai and Ayami Moteki. Instead of showing the color and the name of the paint inside, they show what primary colors in what proportions make the color inside. "By not assigning names to the colors we want to expand the definition of what a color can be, and the various shades they can create by mixing them." Plus they want to encourage kids to learn color theory and how to mix colors. Interesting. Whenever I mix paints everything just turns out brown. Then I have to start over and everything turns out brown again until the art teacher tells me I'm wasting paint and asks if I'd rather just wash out paintbrushes in the sink. Plus in theater class I auditioned and got the part of the guy who puts everyone's costumes back on the rack after rehearsal.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Anubis, whose favorite color is whatever color the afterlife is. Hopefully rainbows.
