HANDMADE ARTISANAL EFFECTS:
Working with water-based paints and not with acrylic paints allows us to continue having contact with the wood - drawing of its veins, its nuances and touches, its own characteristics and variations in wood veins, grains, knots, colours.
Sometimes it could happen that any excess paint pigments in some pieces lose or transfer some colour when coming in contact with the saliva; this is not a problem, they are absolutely safe and non-toxic.
Being close to nature can make some tones and colours have variations. Depending on the humidity or if there is wind the paint can impregnate one way or another in the wood.
The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin, instead of potentially toxic shiny polyurethane (PU) coating.
Each piece that passes through our hands is unique, each one is painted by hand. We understand the “imperfections” of wood as characteristics that make each piece unique. It is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
