Cool idea!

If you want to make the colors lighter and less saturated, you could add white before baking...or just add translucent to make them less saturated and eventually "lighter."  Can take them all the way up to "tints" if you want, which would look more like the test patterns.

Did you know that in those tests they use at the eye-doctor's office, sometimes the color-blind person will see a different number than a regular person, and that helps the doctor know what variety of color-blindness the person has?  Like a 2 instead of a 7, or an 8 for a 3.  I also like the tests they have for younger kids that have pictures (dog, boat, house) instead of numbers.

I do like those for earrings, even if they don't "work" 100%.

Neither my neighbor or my little brother could see them on the paper or the earrings.  It's weird how some colorblind people can see them and some can't.

They seem to be working about 50% of the time! I'm pretty happy with that. I will definitely try to lighten and muten (I'm not sure if that can be made into a verb or not  Huh) the colors if I make another one.

I knew about the genetics people have been talking about, but this I did not know. I wonder what they look like and what they would look like to someone who is color blind...I guess I never really paid that much attention. I'm always just hoping I don't need stronger lenses!

Hubby couldn't see it at all.  He can't see shade differences like red & green are the same & blue & green are the same, but blue is not red for some reason.

I'm not colorblind, but I was associated with someone for a long time who was deficient in blues and greens.  

It's quite fascinating to me actually and I wondered what it may be like to see through the eyes of a colorblind person, so....
