Michael Harding Matt Varnish
Michael Harding Matt Varnish creates a long-lasting protective coating for oil paintings, with a beautiful matte finish. It's made from real beeswax and dissolved in the finest Portuguese turpentine.
To use, heat the container until the contents turn clear and then apply one thin coat which dries within minutes. This varnish should be applied as a final picture varnish to thoroughly dried oil paint, after a drying period of 6 months minimum and if the paint is very thick, one year.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they're now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a "toy store for artists." 80 years in and they're still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Nearby Bay Area.
