This Matt Varnish by Michael Harding is made to a Nineteenth-century recipe. It contains Beeswax and Double-rectified Portuguese Turpentine. It should be used as a final varnish over oil colors which have been allowed to dry completely. Please wait at least six months before applying a picture varnish to an oil painting; if the painting is composed of several thick layers of oil paint, it is advisable to wait twelve months before varnishing.
Before using, please heat the container by immersing it in warm water. This will cause the wax to become clear; the varnish can then be applied sparingly to the surface of the painting. It will dry completely to a matte finish within a couple of minutes.
