For the wooden items we use baltic birch wood sourced from a local wood shop. Baltic birch is a higher quality wood that works great for art projects like this. It can be sanded if you would like to leave a natural look and easily painted. If you would like to leave your project outside we recommend the use of a wood sealer or varnish so that the wood does not absorb moisture.

The paint is a water-based and non-toxic acrylic paint.
