Gamvar

A synthetic-resin gloss varnish developed by conservation scientists at the National Gallery. Can be used for both oil and acrylic paintings and for retouching. Does not yellow with age or become more difficult to remove. Contains a UV stabiliser to offer some protection to less lightfast pigments, depending on how thickly it is applied.

"More and more painters are seeing the benefits of varnishing their paintings. Varnishing with Gamvar is the simplest and fastest way to make your oil and acrylic paintings look better. Based on feedback from artists, we are very happy to introduce Gamvar Satin™ and Gamvar Matte™.

Gamvar Satin gives your work a unified and protective satin surface. Gamvar Satin saturates colors in your painting, yet dries to a lower gloss level compared to original Gamvar.

Gamvar Matte gives your work a unified and protective matte surface. Gamvar Matte™ reduces surface sheen, while maintaining the deepest values in your painting. The formula for original Gamvar is not changing. Gamvar as you know it is now being called Gamvar Gloss™.

Like original Gamvar Gloss, Gamvar Satin and Gavmar Matte stay water-clear and can easily be removed with Gamsol™. All of our Gamvar varnishes are odorless and can be applied when the thickest areas of your painting are dry and firm to the touch."
