Gamblin Gamvar Varnish

Gamblin’s Gamvar is all about saturating and maintaining. It brings out the best of your colors. It also protects your work for ages to come.

Of course it does. Just look at its lineage: Gamblin worked with the National Gallery of Art to bring Gamvar to life.

But, like Gamblin’s other products, the proof is really in the results.

Trekell stocks three versions: Gloss does exactly what the name implies, applying a semi-gloss of perfect consistency over your work’s surface; Satin’s gloss-level is lower without losing the deepening and balancing properties of its sibling; and Matte works in the inverse, lessening sheen while making sure deep values still pop.

All three do the job to such a degree that you’ll question why you kept those traditional varnishes around for so long.

And how about this for a bonus? Gamvar has little to no smell and it’s premixed.

Matte Gamvar

I am not sure why, but the matte varnish left my painting look very streaky. I shook the product before I used it and my painting was completely dry. I never had this issue with the gloss varnish from Gamvar. Based on thus experience I would not recommend the matte varnish.

Hi Yvonne. Thank you for your review! We apologize that you had a bad experience with this product. I would forward this information to Gamblins Customer Support.

Varnish

You have to use it really thin especially on very smooth paintings or brush strokes show. I do love using it though and love that it can be removed if necessary without damaging the painting below.

Clean, even coverage & no brush strokes when dried. Will definitely continue to use this varnish to protect work. Dry time takes a little longer but it worth the wait. Thank you.
