I'm looking at this tool that allows to select material design colors and this document by Google that describes how to pick material design colors.

As far as I understand, I pick 3 primary colors and 1 accent color. My question: are there "premixed" combinations of Material colors I can use for prototyping?

    Just one copmment: you're not supposed to choose 3 primary colors, but 1 primary color and 2 shades (3 hues). From Material's guide: "Limit your selection of colors by choosing three hues from the primary palette and one accent color from the secondary palette. "

This might be what you're looking for: http://www.materialpalette.com/

You initially pick two colors, and it gives you a palette of colors.

    That is a great tool, BUT it doesn't answer the question--which colors go well together? Commented Feb 4, 2016 at 2:47
  • An important question, but not what Alex was asking.

  • @ChadSchultz - granted that not the question that Alex was asking as Alan says but you still raise a very important issue. I have found http://colorpalettes.net/ to be a really nice visual resource for evaluating which colors work well together.
