Unaodd’s Lynn Lunger was inspired by Pantone and spring seed catalogs. She mixed her own Tangerine Tango, Pantone’s color of the year, and started developing her 2012 palette.

Lynn confesses to a crisper drawer full of extra flower seeds from years past. That doesn’t stop her from considering if she should buy some of the new ones offered in this year’s crop of February garden catalogs.

In an effort to resist giving in to seed acquisition, she started filling custom-made silicone molds¬†with her new polymer colors. Imprints of last years’ blooms had been pressed to make the forms. The resulting polymer beads give us visual taste of spring.

What’s happening in Lynn’s studio usually reflects what’s growing outside and her blog is a good garden and studio read. Think spring this weekend.

          Well, what a lovely surprise! I was struck by the title of this post when I saw it on my blogroll this morning. I clicked on it wondering who else was working with Tangerine Tango. :^) I got a dead link this morning, but when I noticed Flickr mails coming in I checked again!

          Thank you, Cynthia, for the cheery feature. It really helped brighten my day. Thank you Sarah and Randee. :^)
