Working with dyes and not with acrylic paints allows us to continue having contact with the wood who is noble and kind. The drawing of the vein, its nuances and touches, its own characteristics. The dye does not jump from the wood when it falls to the ground or when time passes because it penetrates deep inside the piece. Care: Can be wiped with a damp cloth and dry immediately. The pieces should not be submerged in water nor should disinfectant be used.. Each piece that passes through your 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..
