Our 100% natural, eco-friendly Natural Varnish is made with a proprietary blend of plant-based, archival 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, 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 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 most surfaces including paintings, wood, stone, metal, plastics, crafts and more.


Apply with a soft brush, spray (cut with alcohol if needed), or (for woodworking) apply using the French Polish method with a pad onto a completely dry surface. Let dry. Clean brushes and tools with any type of alcohol.

For Matte Finishes:

Our varnish has a natural gloss luster that can be brought to a matte finish with fine abrasives such as 4000 grit steel wool, 800 grit sandpaper or Pumice stones.


Our varnish is made from food-grade ingredients, including grain alcohol, natural resins, oils, and other all-natural ingredients, which makes it a 100% natural and non-toxic spirit varnish.


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.


For woodworking this varnish can be described as a spirit varnish with a high oil content. It works extremely well with the French Polish technique and can be brushed on or sprayed. It is flexible, hard to the fingernail, and rubs out when cured.
