Natural Earth Paint - Non Toxic Natural Varnish

Regular price $28.90

A 100% natural Varnish that is plant-based, archival ingredients using time tested recipes from the Renaissance.

The World's only 100% non-toxic and Natural Varnish.  

This varnish enhances the depth of color and richness with a fast-drying, water-clear, glossy finish. It provides superior, durable final protection against dirt and grease. This varnish is non-yellowing and free from VOCs, heavy metal driers, additives, petroleum based ingredients, harsh fumes, and toxic additives. It’s truly non-toxic, and won’t bloom or crack like some other conventional varnishes. It’s also perfect for “re-touching” or giving a unified sheen to your project! This varnish seals many surfaces including paintings, wood, stone, crafts and more.

The Varnish is not designed to be 100% waterproof but it will hold up for a while outside. It will need to be re-applied periodically.

Woodworker Tips & Tricks:
1. This product is a spirit varnish containing 190 proof grain alcohol, natural resins, oils, and all natural ingredients. Due to being made from food grade ingredients, it is a 100% natural and non-toxic spirit varnish.
2. It is both musical instrument grade and fine furniture or sculpture grade. Due to its high alcohol content it penetrates deeply on the first coat yet is considered a film finish.
3: The varnish can be applied over a dried natural oil finish. It can be sprayed, applied by brush or rag, and works very well in a French polish method with a pad.
4: Due to its natural gloss luster, it can be brought to matte with fine abrasives. For furniture and cabinet work a coat of paste wax greatly enhances its properties as well as its appearance.
5: For spraying large areas - this product can be cut with more alcohol.
