:: Forest Fable ::
Our woodland wanderings were the inspiration for our newest watercolor collection ‘Forest Fable’. A gathering of paint hues inspired by the magical fungi and flowers in the old-growth redwood forest where our Wildthorne studio is located. After the rain, I often enjoy foraging in the forest both near and afar seeking out the tiny treasures that dot the landscape in fungi. Each discovery adds a thrill of excitement as entire miniature worlds and ecosystems can be found in the woods.
The ‘Forest Fable’ palette features 6 brand new watercolors in both warm and cool hues to create a lovely range of mixing colours. Named after the fungi species and flowers that surround our studio forest.

Delicate watercolor pastel hues can be created with the ‘Forest Fable’ paints in soft and serene layers. A versatile palette at full strength these watercolors are rich, vibrant, and deep.
Each ‘Forest Fable’ palette of watercolors will be gift-wrapped and sent to you in a portable reusable metal tin, along with our complimentary signature artisan letterpress as a gift.
Our specialty curated palettes also come with an exclusive Wildthorne hand-letterpressed artisan swatch card that nestles snugly within your watercolor palette ready to be painted by you. Our letterpress cards are crafted one at a time with sustainability and environmental responsibility in mind. The paper is 100% tree-free cotton made locally in the United States as a byproduct of the cotton garment industry. With a soft luxurious and tactile feel to the touch, it is a surface that invites your artistry.
Our lovely mineral watercolor paints have beautiful granulation and can be layered from thick to thin. Artist-grade and lightfast, each pan is hand-poured to exacting traditional recipes and techniques in our studio using the highest quality earth pigments, and natural watercolor binding medium made from distilled water, honey, glycerine, and the sap of acacia trees.
