Tangerine Tango...

You might have heard that Pantone's Color of the Year for 2012 is Tangerine Tango.  I've been working in the studio to cook up the perfect recipe to capture this color and translate it to my enamel work.

I'm quite pleased with the results.  I've added a bit more burnt golds to my version.  I think it makes the darker – more red – orange POP!  I can't help but daydream of using this in all kinds of projects!  Just wait and see!

*love* these! The great thing about seeing the colours out in the world (rather than on Pantone) is that they have life, dimesion; light and shade play their part, and they are so much more interesting than the pure, flat blocks! Will you be selling these beads on the Allegory Gallery website?

I'll stay up late tonight and see what I can make. I might do a limited run for sale.
