as said, a slider is a technical solution but not a very practical.
Color pickers are nice things to have. It should have a swatch too where one can place project-specific color chips. As for the rest, the current color setting gadget in Wings is a pretty good example of something very useful. Both RGB sliders and HSV ones at the same time. That could be a good starting point. And separate fields for base 1 (OGL) settings as well as base 256 (standard RGB)
Have you ever tried the HSV sliders? For some people, HSV makes more sense when mixing colors.

You just start with black (total darkness - R,G,B=0) and give it a bit of blue.
As ray_theray said though, HSV silders are probably easier to understand... e.g. if you want it darker or lighter, use the V (value) slider. If you want to change the hue - e.g. make the blue more purplish or greenish - use the H (hue) slider... and to make it more like B&W (reducing or increasing the colour "saturation") use the S slider.
