Anyone else out there varnish their watercolor paintings?  I've been doing this for almost 10 years now, and I love the way acrylic varnish makes my paintings look - rich colors with no reflection.

Let me know how you varnish your watercolors or if you'd like to know how I do it.

Hi my name is Jody, just curious should you not use a frame with acrylic front to frame a watercolour painting? I have been buying watercolour paintings and framing myself I use a mat board so they aren't touching the acrylic, I have found it hard to find nice glass front frames in my price range so I just get the plastic ones, they actually look really nice. Have you got any other tips for framing, should I tape the edges on the back of the frame?  : )
