Gamvar Picture Varnish
Developed in collaboration with the National Gallery of Art, Gamblin Gamvar Varnish saturates and gives greater depth to the colors in your painting and gives your work a unified and protective surface. Virtually odorless and ready to apply, Gamvar goes on water-clear, stays water-clear, and can be easily and safely removed with Gamblin Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits.
Gamvar can be applied with a brush when the thickest areas of your painting are thoroughly dry and firm to the touch. Spray application is not recommended. The 2 oz size covers approximately 40 square feet (3.7 square meters). The 8 oz size covers approximately 160 square feet (15 square meters). The 16 oz size covers approximately 320 square feet (30 square meters).
