  • Using wood/twigs....

    On occasion i have made things using twigs. Usually using them as a frame for a dream catcher or a web type hanging using wool or something. Iv never treated the wood with anything.

    If i were to do this but make stuff to sell to people i would need to treat the wood wouldnt i? So it lasted longer.

    What would i use.

    Years ago, I used to make concrete garden ornaments and after I'd let them dry out, I gave them a liberal coating of Thompson's Water Seal, to prevent frost damage.
    Thompsons also do a total wood protection, clear or tinted, which should be available at B&Q and similar stores.
    Life's not a race, do take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over.

      You could just give them a coat of varnish, making sure they're properly dry first. I use water-based indoor varnish, and that works fine.

        Danish oil would be a good choice, it wouldn't detract form the natural colour of the piece, yet would protect it
        Wood crafting is a lost art, which can seen in the timeless beauty of solid oak furniture
