  • Flexible. Will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes.
  • Resists discoloring (non-yellowing, non-fogging) due to humidity, heat and ultraviolet light.

Application Tips

  • Mix with a gloss finish to vary the sheen.
  • Can be thinned up to 25% with mineral spirits or turpentine. Do not use Odorless Mineral Spirits.
  • Application may be done by brush or spray. Generally a sprayed application will be thinner, smoother and more even. Rolling or sponging application is not recommended.
  • Painting surface and environment must be clean, dry and dust free.
  • Allow oil paint to dry for 6 months to one year and acrylic paint for a minimum of 72 hours. Thickness of application will determine exact length of time.
  • If an oil painting is not dry before it is sealed with a varnish, the result may be long-term problems such as cracking or blistering.
  • Varnish may become non-removable if applied over a painting that has not completely dried and cured.

Available in 32 oz bottle and 10.4 oz aerosol spray can.
