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 Professional Varnish?
Available in Matt, Gloss and Satin finishes, Winsor & Newton Professional Varnish is perfect for use on paintings with rough brushwork, as a thinner layer can be applied than with a brush.
