What is Brass CMYK Color?

Brass CMYK (Hex code: BDA632) Thumbnail

Brass CMYK code is (30, 30, 100, 0) which means it has 30 of both cyan and magenta, 100 of yellow and 0 of black. The closest hex code of the color is #BDA632 with RGB equivalent values (189, 166, 50). The CMYK system is the backbone of the color printing technology found in both large industrial and small desktop printers. Colors are created using only four inks - cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y) and black (K). Please understand that the reproducibility of brass CMYK depends on the quality of the paper, the printer and the inks in the machine.

Note: The hex code for brass CMYK mentioned on this page is only an approximation; it has been calculated from the CMYK values. Hexadecimal and RGB color values are for screen and digital media while the CMYK model is used for printing and, therefore, the conversion of one to another is not perfect. Also, the way brass looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
