rainbow-mode is super handy when making color themes:

When you're testing your color theme some properties, such as
background-color, will not change, try the theme in a new session.

Read and copy some other themes, I copied mine from a theme I liked
called chocolate rain.

I put mine up today, color-theme-cool-dark
https://github.com/yhvh/color-theme-cool-dark

and a still very new, light theme for gnome-3

To find out what a particuar face is called just put your cursor over
the face and do M-x describe-face
