Varnishing refers to a transparent water resistant coating that is applied onto surfaces of wooden accessories to protect the item and make cleaning easy. 💡Is it safe for hamsters and other pets? We use Mod Podge, a non toxic, acrylic decoupage that is highly water resistant. 💡How much does this service cost? We charge a flat fee of $2 PER ITEM, regardless of complexicity and surface area. This service is only valid for items from taffys.net at the time of purchase. 💡What is the lead time for varnishing? A lead time of 1-3 days is neccessary for items to be varnished and cured. If you purchase multiple wooden accessories but would like to varnish only one, please leave us a note specifying which item.
