"Visit the Paintbox Tales Masterworks Gallery and stay awhile to view the set of Miniature Masterworks oil paintings that I have created for ‘Starway Sapphires’. The first story in the collection of short stories from The Paintbox Tales, these miniatures portray the events that led up  to Zand’s inheritance from his grandfather, Artimus Glin – his legacy Paintbox, filled with the promise of magical things to come, with which to release Zand’s inner creativity.”

Exclusively composed by Liza Mulholland for Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer and Paul Taggart’s Elphen Chronicles, the musical soundscape that accompanies the Video-Storybooks of Webstrand and The Paintbox Tales, transports us into the Elphen world of Shimmistra. Feel the rush of wings as Fizz first meets Webstrand and her Tooth Gathering Swarm; fly with Fizz through the Blue Crystal Cavern and over the Silver Forest, as she journeys on to Shimmistra and onward to the magma fields of Arktura. Experience Zand’s horror at his encounter with a Raknid, in ‘Starway Sapphires’, countered by his surprise and delight at meeting Weftwing. Bask in the glow of a Summer’s day in his grandmother’s garden, as he catches his first sighting of the Starway Sapphires.
