We are thrilled to be able to present this fantastic collection of Zest-it art products. One of the things about Zest-it which is particularly great is that they like to do things ecologically. Keeping (at least!) one eye on the welfare of the planet whilst also ensuring that the products do their intended jobs extremely successfully.

Pleasant Smelling - Ecologically Friendly

Zest-it have set out to produce the very best non-toxic and environmentally friendly solvents. Where the name comes in is that they have figured out a way of doing this with the help of the zest of citrus fruits. Pleasant smelling, recyclable and safer than turpentine, Zest it therefore really does tick an awful lot of boxes!

A New Way of Doing Things

Among our collection of Zest-it art products, you will find some painting mediums, brush cleaners, wax for oil paints and cold wax solvents. These will be the products that allow you creative process to be even more joyful because of the careful consideration that has gone into their conception and production.

Creativity & Conscientiousness

It is a great thing to engage in your creative passion, to express yourself on and to lose yourself in the canvas. But, in losing your sense of self in the feeling of some greater purpose of artistic endeavour, you should also be able to do this without damaging yourself or the planet we live on. By choosing these solvents which contain no Aromatics or CFC's, and so are non-hazardous and generally kinder to the environment, you will enable a beautiful melding of the love of art and of the earth.
