Zest-it 5lb Cut Varnish
250 ml 5lb Cut Damar Varnish
We make the 5lb Cut Varnish in the Traditional way which is slow and gentle, the Gum Damar is not forced to dissolve by the use of heat or other methods. In its own time it will dissolve in the Zest-it.
The '5lb Cut' refers to the Varnish Makers traditional way of producing 'spirit' or 'cold cut' varnish using 5 lb of resin to 1 Gallon of solvent.
The 5lb Cut Varnish can be diluted with Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner to your choice for the application or used as is for making mediums for use with oils.
Varnishing needs to be carried out on a dry day with little air flow for best results. It is always better to apply varnish in thin coats allowing drying in-between. Apply with a soft brush and even strokes. Protect from dust whilst drying. Always test on a small area before applying to the painting.
Please make sure the varnish is applied in 'thin' coats!
Point to note:- Synthetic Gum Damar cannot be dissolved with either Zest-it Oil Paint Dilutant and Brush Cleaner, nor Zest-it Citrus Free Solvent!
