How to measure metamerism

How to measure metamerism

How to measure metamerism What is metamerism There’s a widely-used tale to explain just what metamerism is and how it has an effect on us, often without us initially realising it. Imagine the scene: You’re getting dressed in the morning, you throw on a pair of black socks thinking they’re a perfect match, but it’s not until you arrive at work that you realise one of them is navy. That’s metamerism. Another scenario could be that you are shopping for that new carpet you’ve been...

Here, we’ll reveal further exactly why grey is the colour of choice, rather than the multitude of other colours that are readily available. You can have any colour as long as its grey – VeriVide (via Henry Ford)....

It looked nothing like that in the shop! – Metamerism an explanation

It looked nothing like that in the shop! – Metamerism an explanation Metamerism is the word used to explain when two samples match in colour under one set of conditions but no longer match when one of the conditions changes. Metamerism is a very common phenomenon and yet consumers do not expect the colour of an item they purchased to change.   It is therefore very important to ensure that multiple components of a product which may be manufactured by different suppliers or in different materials such as polymer resins, painted and coated surfaces and...

The Colour of Politics: why are the Tories blue, the Labour Party red and the Liberal’s Orange?

The Colour of Politics: why are the Tories blue, the Labour Party red and the Liberal’s Orange? The colours associated with Political Parties hold significant meaning, symbolism and history for them, but as with any image trope these colours have evolved and changed over time. Most recently we have seen the two main political parties; the Conservatives and the Labour Party expand their colours with greens and purples, to update their respective images for today’s electorate and new parties seek to find their own colour to differentiate themselves.

Why does fabric darken when wet?

Why does fabric darken when wet?

Why does fabric darken when wet? The way we perceive colour is by the light which hits the object we are looking at.
