Winsor & Newton Oil Colour Varnishes are designed to enhance the creations of artists working with oil colour, such as Winsor & Newton’s Artist’s Oil and Winton Oil colour ranges. A superior quality varnish, resistant to blooming and cracking, Winsor & Newton Artists’ Varnish dries quickly to a non-yellowing finish.
What is a Varnish?
Traditionally a combination of drying oil, resin, and a thinner or solvent, Varnish is a transparent liquid which dries to form a hard, protective film.
Why use a Varnish?
In addition to preserving artwork, and offering protection against dirt and dust, a varnish evens out the final appearance of the paint, ensuring a uniform finish.
Why choose Winsor & Newton Artists’ Varnish?
Available in Matt, Gloss and Satin finishes, Winsor & Newton Artists’ Varnish should be applied once painting is completely dry (6-12 months). This varnish is removable with Winsor & Newton Artists’ White Spirit or Distilled Turpentine. It should be noted that this varnish is not suitable for use as a medium.
