From Beam Paints about their Inaatig Maple Watercolour Palettes: "
This palette comes from the heart of our familys Maple Sugar Bush, colours inspired by the magical tree in spring with its chartreuse tree flowers, the silver grey and deep black of its trunk, the red maple colour and ochre colours of its leaves in the fall. And violet in the punky bark used by elders to dye porcupine quills for basket making.
Set in a cross section of a dry sugar maple branch
each one marked with unique marbling that comes from slow dry aging maple. From our maple forest, tended and cared for by our family for generations, 1/2 inch pans sealed with hemp oil makes this a totally vegan palette from paint to wood."
