Handy Hints:

  • Matte and Satin Varnish should be shaken gently before use to disperse matting agent.  Over shaking will cause bubbles.

  • A coat of Clear Glaze Medium is recommended as a barrier coat prior to varnishing depending on climate and humidity.

  • Use Varnish full strength.

  • Apply thin layers in a criss-cross motion using a soft but firm bristle brush suitable to surface size.

  • Smooth coat with final brushstrokes in the direction of the wood grain.

  • Allow to air dry a minimum of an hour before applying additional coats.  Drying time varies depending on climate and humidity.

  • Apply three coats before sanding. Sand lightly if 24 hours have lapsed between coats to ensure proper adhesion.

  • For alcohol resistant finish or for outdoor use, apply a minimum of 4 to 5 coats of varnish. Allow to cure a minimum of 2 weeks before use.

  • If using a hair dryer for surface drying, hold away from the surface and avoid excessive heat which could cause cracking.
