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?

A:
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.
