Alternatives to Damar Varnish

24 Feb 2009

Q: I would like to put a finish on several oil paintings. Damar provides the depth I am looking for, but it’s a little too glossy for my taste. Any other suggestions?

A:
Sennelier produces a variety of varnishes that will offer matte, satin, or glossy finishes. These products are acid-free, non-yellowing, and rapid-drying. Be sure to apply them only to artwork that is completely dry.
