Varnish Instructions

Varnish Instructions



Make sure your painting is dry to the touch, and no areas are still wet as the paint might run. Paintings can be varnished within 2-3 weeks after completing the painting, but if you wait longer it is recommended you wait 6 months.

Application: brushstroke-4.jpg

Use a soft, natural bristle brush (Flat, preferably 1.5 or 2 inches). Dip the brush into a wide-mouth varnish jar, and press against the rim to remove excess varnish. Brush the varnish onto the painting, spreading the varnish as you go to create a thin layer. Do not scrub very hard, just enough to spread the varnish around. The varnish will start to set up and get tacky quickly, so don't go over areas many times. When necessary, dip brush into jar again and continue brushing onto painting until fully covered with an even thin layer.

Paintings usually require anywhere between 1-3 coats. Make sure varnish is again dry to the touch and not tacky before applying another coat. Leaving a painting in the sun will usually dry the varnish in 1 day. Depending on climate, you may have to wait a few days to apply another coat.
