For those artists who paint with oils in the traditional way, using linseed oil as a solvent and prepare layer upon layer, I thought I would share a quick post with you about Daler Rowney Damar Varnish.
I used it recently for the first time on this painting. The painting has recently sold on Artfinder. I used the varnish to protect the final painting and bring back the lustre of the oil colour. I found it enhanced the colours and made the whole piece come to life. I will use it on every piece going forwards.
It can be used to protect paintings temporarily and can be removed with solvent. I liked it so much I left it on.
