In the world of art, achieving the perfect finish is crucial, and that's where the Conservar Dammar Varnish Kit comes in. This exceptional kit allows you to create a varnish that is fresh and ready to use when needed, ensuring that your artwork looks its absolute best. The kit contains everything you need, including Dammar Solvent, Dammar resin, UV Stabilizer, a mixing jar, and a pipette.

Conservar Dammar Varnish is a high-quality varnish made from the finest grade of natural dammar resin dissolved in aromatic and aliphatic solvents with a UV light stabilizer. What's more, it has been proven to not oxidize or yellow for 50 years if protected from UV light, as demonstrated by accelerated aging tests conducted at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. This remarkable varnish boasts optimum wetting of the paint surface, enhancing and bringing out colors while minimizing solvent action on paint and maximizing resin content for excellent coverage. When dry, it forms a film that levels well and can be rubbed for a less glossy finish.

Dammar, a popular varnish since the 19th century, offers an extremely high gloss finish. Rublev Colours, the esteemed brand behind this exceptional product, offers the natural resin in various varnish formulations, including the traditional five-pound cut in turpentine and as a traditional picture varnish in petroleum solvents. However, the Conservar Dammar Finishing Varnish is the gold standard for picture varnishing.

It's essential to note that stronger and more polar solvents will be needed to remove dammar as time goes by. As a result, it's crucial to use the Conservar Dammar Varnish Kit as a final varnish on paint films such as alkyd oil.

Before applying the varnish, it's vital to test it on a similar composition to the artwork to ensure a successful application. Application is straightforward: simply pour the solvent into the jar with the varnish resin, close the jar, shake, and allow it to stand until completely dissolved, usually within one to two days.

When the varnish is ready, prepare your painting and varnish materials and tools to the same environment, ensuring a dust-free space with minimal air movement. Apply the varnish using a wide, flat, soft-hair brush or by spraying, making sure to follow the recommended application techniques for optimal results.

The Conservar Dammar Varnish Kit is a game-changer for artists seeking a superior finish. With its exceptional quality, impressive coverage, and ease of use, this kit is an indispensable tool for anyone looking to protect and enhance their artwork. Remember, a successful application requires patience, so be sure to follow the recommended instructions carefully.
