Child Safe Finish For Toys

With all the news of toxic chemicals in toys made over seas, child-safe finishes have become a hot topic.  Cynthia Lewman from Toymaker Press put together a really nice tutorial on how to make your own non-toxic, child safe finish for toys.  This finish will display the beauty of the wood, but won’t hurt the little ones if they decide to chew on the toy before playing with it.  Be sure to check out Toymaker Press for some really cool toy patterns, too.

    with regards to the bees wax finish, can food dyes be added.

  • My concern would be if the waterbasde food dye would mix very well with the oil and wax. My suggestion would be to color the wood before applying the wax. That’s the way many toy makers do it.
