    Hi Everyone,

    My new Studio Color Wheel by Joen Wolfrom came in the mail today and I'm trying to decide the best way to display it so I can use both sides as they are different.

    I have a spot above my cutting table that I'd like to hang it, but I want to be able to flip it from front to back as needed.

    Unfortunately, there are several creases in it from being folded in it's package, as they do not come rolled up but folded in thirds each way. Would love to lessen these creases somehow.

    I was thinking of laminating it and then maybe punching a hole for a hanger, but maybe someone out there has a better idea for me.

    I'm attaching two pics, front and back. It really is a wonderful tool, so I'd like to use it to it's full potential. The only 'directions' for hanging on the package insert are, "Hang it in your sewing room, studio, office or anywhere you work with color." Maybe the back side is just for looks and I shouldn't worry about it. :lol:

    Thanks,

    front

    I don't have any answers for you but I will tell you people say I have a great eye for color but I couldn't use a color wheel if my life depended on it. I would just enjoy the pretty side myself.

    funny you say the back is just for looks. I like the back better and would find it more useful. LOL. How big is it? Could you put it in a "floating frame" and just pull it off the wall as needed?

    Gee, maybe I just need to call you when I need help, right? :lol: I feel like I'm a bit "color challenged", so hoping this will help me. Thanks for your thoughts.

    I guess it's all about perspective, huh? I hope one of the two sides helps me! :lol: :roll:

    It is 28" square. You can learn more about it here if you like:

    What is a "floating frame"?

    Thanks,

    You can press it with a warm iron to get the creases out.

    Thanks for the encouragement, but I cannot tell a lie... this is one block of a BOM that I did and so the fabrics were included in the deal. That's too expensive to do very often, tho. :lol:

    They're not too expensive. I'd be tempted to buy two and hang them side by side. After they fade from the sun, lights, and time you can flip them over.
