"Create Dazzling Art with the Click of a Mouse"

The demo of this program shipped with a number of Performa models in the mid-90s. It's an art program in the vein of Kid Pix, with a considerable number of built-in image assets. One of the more unique features is support for cycling colors, allowing for the creation of flowing water and flame effects.

This is the full version.

1st Download is the complete Macintosh program as it came from the CD.
2nd Download is an ISO of the entire Mac/Windows hybrid CD.

Architecture: 68k PPC

Flying Colors Version1.09 News:
If you are running Flying Colors on a Power Macintosh, turn "OFF" the Memory Manager program within the Memory option of Control Panels.

Flying Colors requires that your video display driver be set to 256 colors only.

Thanks! Its always a good idea to preserve the original media wherever possible.
Installed from ISO, the app also plays fine on W2K (with sound).

Okay, I created an ISO with the IMGBurn program. Hopefully it preserves the Windows version as well.

Thanks for sharing this gem!
May I ask whether you would kindly add a toast or iso image for archival reasons?
If you have a Windows system, W2K or better, IMGBurn is the way to preserve such CDs.
A virtual machine running Windows will do too of course.
