    Lori, no, I just found out about it. The things that look interesting to me are that it is clear, for watercolor, and it supposedly enhances the colors. I was a little concerned about whether regular varnish might yellow or change the original colors in an unpleasant way.

    Sharon, have you or Lori ever heard of Demco clear drying varnish for watercolors that supposedly enhances the colors? Nasco sells it.

    Wow, Sharon, that really seems to change the colors a lot. The painting I did on the Fredix canvas wasn't affected by varnishing. I guess you have to decide what kind of finished effect you want. I think Birgit O'Connor teaches how to apply 300 lb paper to clay board, but she didn't teach...
