Thanks.

There are 255 colors with primary,secondary and tertiary colors on the color wheel.

Can all those 255 chalk colors be manufactured?

Thanks & Regards,

There's no reason to think the manufacture of chalk corresponds to eight bit digital color, is there?

Is it possible to manufacture those 255 chalk colors?

Mixing of Primary,Secondary & Tertiary colors.

Chalk is Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3).

Coming back to the original question, Can 255 color Chalks can be manufactured similar to colors in the RGB wheel?

Yes or No?

If Yes - How?
If No - Why?

Thanks & Regards,

I ask you again, why do you think there are 255 colors? Do you understand that the 255 number comes from 8-bit color in digital computers? Nature has many more colors than that. And for that matter, computers aren't limited to 8-bit color anymore either.
