Product Description
A really effective demonstration of how contrasting colours can help to make objects stand out from backgrounds and other colours. Could be used to help explain the importance of thick and thin line techniques in Design and Technology or in Art or simply as an optical illusion.The slide show simply starts off with the two circles positioned on either side of the screen, one on the dark shade and the other on the light. The circles have been timed to move next to each other demonstrating they are actually the same colour. The children I have shown this to can't actually believe they are the same colour, they are convinced the slide show changes the colour of the circles as they is that effective.
