So I waited a good while (at least 6 months) before varnishing my tulips painting yesterday.
Its on pre gessoed wooden panel.
CJD gave me some useful advice to mix it 75% Gamvar and 25% Gamsol, as I have heard from various others that it can be overly glossy.
I also used the advice from Virgil Elliot video to go over with a clean dry brush after laying down the varnish.
The problem is when I looked this morning the finish (mainly on the flower heads) of the varnish at a certain angle has the look of water being applied to a wax surface, i.e. there are little areas where it looks like it hasn't taken to the surface.
I have put another thin layer on (same mix as above) bet left out the dry brushing at the end.
I think that uneven look may still be there. I have done thin layer each time. I did follow the advice on the Gamvar site and do a vigorous scrubbing motion.
Im now kind of wishing I had used a different product.
Any help or advice would be welcome.
