A varnish protects all the work that you have done on your project, whether it is a wall, furniture, craft project or canvas painting. It keeps out all environmental elements. A varnish is commonly called a “topcoat”. Several layers of varnish are always suggested for total protection. Many times a project is “considered done” just before this final coating. Not only does it protect what has been done, it intensifies it. The colors pop out and glow, giving a deep beautiful look that cannot be achieved any other way.
There are 3 common sheens in varnish, matte, satin and gloss. Polyurethane Varnish has a urethane resin that gives a strong resilience as a protection. It is extremely tough and hard. It works great on countertops, and objects that get hard use. It is great in children’s rooms and on children’s furniture. Waterbased VOC Free Conforms to ASTM D4236.
