Note: The hex code for gamboge 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 gamboge looks on the screen (via the hex code) would be very different from how it appears printed on paper (via its CMYK values).
