Varnishing and Finishing Art

At this stage of the process a decision has to be made regarding the correct choice of varnish finish as follows:

A varnish is applied to work of art for protection and long term preservation this is offered in a range of finishes, choose from Matt, Semi Matt right up to a full Gloss, in either oil or acrylic, depending on our clients preferences.

They are applied by hand or spray to suit the work and style of the painting. The current trend, and our preference would be an oil based Semi Matt finish to reduce reflections and minimise glare.
