How long should I wait before using varnish ?
The client wants to take the painting as soon as possible.
I have been waiting till the paint is dry to the touch. a week or two then use, W & N Artist gloss varnish. comes in bottle 16.9 US fl oz ( expensive ) Then I ask the client to bring it back or have someone else give it another coat of varnish in six months or a year. fine time to ask for directions after I did About two dozen paintings.
Also is there a less expansive varnish out there ?
Thank you, Bill J
