i'm getting ready to order some supplies and want to try a varnish by gamblin (gamvar). Anyone use it, comments.
I had my paintings dull last summer, attributed to an absorbent ground and turps., too much. I read dammar doesn't fix my problem.
Found a few old time grounds to try, lead based, that may help next batch. One interesting method to make porous gesso nonabsorbent is to give two coats of skim milk. Trying it now. Searching the problem I had popped up many others having the same issue. Mark addressed the issue in part with his oil out video.
