Pantone's Colors of Spring 2012

I thought we'd have a little fun this Winter while we're waiting for Spring.  We're talking about COLOR!  Pantone is the world-renowned authority on color.  Who better to guide us, huh? For 45 years, they've been guiding the fashion, home furnishings, and graphics industries on color.  They've just released their colors for Spring and declared Tangerine Tango the color of the year. 
Here's Pantone's Spring Fashion Color Report ...

The Painting with Fire Team took a look at this chart and said, "Well, what the heck! Let's try to replicate it in Thompson Enamels!"  Here's what we came up with! 

The icing on the cake is that for the next 8 Sundays, we'll be introducing the Color of the Week with a 20% off sale on the enamels that go into making that color for that week.  So, by the time Spring is here, you can have all of the enamels you need to produce your own pieces inspired by Pantone.   Some of you already have these colors in your inventory, so go ahead and get started making pieces in the Colors of Spring.  I thought you might like this!

Barbara, you have almost got an enameling convert here. It is so fun that you can take the Pantone colours and put your own spin on the palette. Ah, that glazes could be done this way!
