The animated graphics show you how colours mix in the eyes. Although you can get far better results by making one yourself and spinning it really fast. Follow the instructions below to make your very own colour-mixing discs.

Make your own colour-mixing discs

  1. Place a small round bowl on a firm white card and trace around it.

  2. Cut out your circle.

  3. Divide your circle into 16 equal parts.

  4. Colour the sections alternatively blue - yellow or red - yellow.
