Do I need to varnish my paintings?
If you are an artist, you may choose to varnish your paintings, with some mediums, such as acrylic painting, this is usually considered essential as it will help to protect your masterpiece from dust, UV rays and yellowing. It will also help to make colours more intense and add a glossy finish to your work. Always ensure that your paint has completely dried before adding your coats of varnish, and free from any dust or dirt. We recommend having a separate paintbrush that is used for varnishing purpose, as using one that has remnants of paint on it will result in a streaky canvas that is not possible to remove. Aerosol varnishes are ideal for acrylic paints, and these can be used vertically in thin layers. They are also perfect for sealing sketches or charcoal drawings, preventing your work of art from smudging in the future.
Do you have any tips for working with varnish?
Well, that depends on which of our varnishes you choose and the project that you are making. However, there are a few things to consider when you are varnishing. Remember that preparation is everything! Your surface should be clean and dry, and that there is no bumps, stains or blemishes. If you are varnishing wood, for example, sand it down to remove any imperfections before you begin. If you are using a spray varnish, it is not recommended that you shake the can or stir varnish in a pot, as this will cause bubbles in the mixture. Paint in the direction of the grain to ensure a smooth coating, applying it with a soft, fairly wide brush. Always ensure that your coats have dried through before applying the next one sanding down the dried layer before you apply the next one. The
Is there anything else I need to remember?
Always make sure that you use varnish in a well-ventilated area or outside. Ensure that you are varnishing your work in a dust free room and that you cover anything that could get damaged. This should also be inaccessible to young children and pets, and you should not touch your varnished item while it is drying. Check to see if the varnish that you have purchased is for indoor or outdoor use and that you have enough to ensure proper coverage.
