Spring Greens These beauties received their start from a lively overdye. Inspired by Lime-Lime, Irish Eyes and Mary Jane, each one of the colors in this palette is unique. In the second slot, is a new singles color, Summer Time Lawn. Perfect for any floral or garden canvas.
Classic Greens You will recognize 4 of these colors from our singles line: Irish Eyes, Christmas Green, Mary Jane and Pickleweed. The 4th slot has a newcomer to the singles line, SeaBean which is related to Pickleweed, just much lighter, making it great for highlights. This palette, as the name implies, is perfect for anything from Christmas canvases to trees and shrubbery.
Cowboy Copper Browns This palette evokes anything good and earthy—just like a classic cowboy. The rich overdye has less black than tree bark and highlights more gold and red toned browns. The adjoining colors are all new browns. The 4th slot is a half mixture of the dye for Chocolate, so they are great colors to use together. These browns are perfect for tree trunks and forest creatures.
Fawny Tawny Browns These lighter tones take their inspiration from Toasted Almond, but you will also find our Brown Eyed Girl leading in the first slot. And a brand new ‘straw’ color in the 5th slot rounds out this ‘must’ have palette for baskets, straw hats, brooms etc.
