I’m interested in hearing if anyone oils out their paintings before varnishing. And if so how do you do it? Do you let it dry before applying the varnish? The web site (see link below) says to oil out the painting before applying the varnish so as to not have shiny areas where parts of the painting are shiny because of the amount of oil in the paint.
Also how many coats do you generally apply?
what kind of varnish do you use?
ive been using Gamvar and I apply one or two thin coats.
