After several years of development by a Master Varnish Formulator, a truly non-toxic and natural varnish is finally available here!
Our 100% natural, non-toxic Natural Varnish is made with a proprietary blend of plant-based, archival, and biodegradable ingredients using time-tested recipes from the Renaissance. This varnish enhances depth of color and richness with a fast-drying, water-clear, glossy finish. It provides superior and durable final protection against dirt and grease.
Hand-crafted in small batches, 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 perfect for “re-touching” or giving a unified sheen to any project! This varnish seals many surfaces including paintings, wood, stone, crafts and more.
What is your Natural Varnish made from?
Our varnish is made from food-grade ingredients, including 190 proof grain alcohol, natural resins, oils, and other all-natural ingredients, which makes it a 100% natural and non-toxic spirit varnish.
What can I use the Natural Varnish for?
Our varnish is well-suited for all paintings, musical instruments, fine furniture, and sculpture, as well as a variety of craft projects. It has a high alcohol content so it penetrates deeply on the first coat and provides a beautiful film finish.

Our varnish can be cut with alcohol to make it easier to spray on large areas.
