This versatile varnish creates a subtle gloss finish. Our Dammar Varnish is made from the best quality dammar resin from Thailand dissolved in double rectified Portuguese maritime turpentine, then carefully filtered. Apply as a final picture varnish to thoroughly dried oil paint, six months minimum and if paint is very thick one year.
Our Matt Varnish creates a long lasting protective coating with a beautiful matt finish and is made from real bees wax dissolved again in the finest Portuguese turpentine. Before using heat the container until the contents turns clear then apply one thin coat which dries within minutes. Apply this varnish as a final picture varnish to thoroughly dried oil paint.
