Mediums & Varnishes

Varnish is the finishing touch on an acrylic or oil painting that can be used instead of glass to protect the piece from dust, UV rays and time. The addition of varnish will also contribute to the homogeneity of a piece – ensuring that every part of the work has a uniform matte, satin or gloss finish. There are a variety of varnishes that appropriate for either acrylic or oil paintings with a few available that can be used for both mediums.
