The many faces of Tangerine Tango 2012

Tangerine Tango is the Pantone color of Spring and Summer 2012. If you have wondered what this looks like and are a bit confused, you are not alone. If you Google an image of this orange, you will not only get many results of one type of orange which one would image ONE color to be, but you will get many shades of it.
many tangerines
I made a small palette of Tangerine Tango, although I could add to those shades, lol.

Here is my version in Premo Sculpey polymer clay:

Back in August 2011 I was in a big Orange mood and sure reminds me of these colors. Maybe subconsciously I saw a trend coming? There were also other oranges on my blog such as these...

I envy your color mixing ability! Thank you so much for the recipes.

Thanks Marie.
Knowing the basics of the primaries is helpful. Red + yellow = orange, red + blue = purple, blue + yellow = green, white lightens, black darkens and from there I add instinct. I find it is kind of similar to cooking.

Maybe that is why I have been craving orange foods lately. Orange juice, orange popsicles, cheesies...all things I rarely eat or drink!
