I saw some videos yesterday on Gamvar varnish. I understand that you can varnish your oils with that once it is dry to the touch and not wait months and months. Has anyone ever used it? Would like your feedback on this specific varnish.
I have never varnished any of my oil paintings but are considering it if I can use this with success. Thanks in advance.

Thanks Nolan.
I think I am going to get a small bottle and try it out.

I took the plunge and purchased the Gamvar Gloss varnish. I am very happy with it.
I wrote a blog post about it if anyone is interested in reading it. [size=78%]https://www.marynamoolmanart.com/blog/to-varnish-or-not-to-varnish[/size]
