This tutorial explores how the three primary subtractive colors cyan, magenta, and yellow can be added, along with black, to create four-color prints in a manner similar to the printing press.

To operate the tutorial, use the mouse cursor to drag the separated colors on top of one another to build up the image as it appears on the bottom right side of the window.
