Two Layers of Varnish

24 Feb 2009

Q: I recently varnished an oil painting with matte varnish, but I am unhappy with the finish (Grumbacher). Can I varnish the painting again with a glossy varnish?

You can revarnish the painting, but to be safe you should use the same brand of varnish because changing brands may cause problems such as blooming, cracking, or yellowing.
