Tinte is a changing work of art and a building set rolled into one. The set of notched hardwood building blocks, painted in 42 different colors, are housed and displayed in a wood frame. Hang it on the wall (ether horizontally or vertically) and it becomes a changing work of art. Remove the blocks from the frame and now you have a unique building toy creating a never-ending variety of richly colored three-dimensional architectural forms and structures. An explanatory guide introduces the builder to color theory and the basic attributes of color—hue, value, and intensity.
