Product Questions and Answers

I need to seal alcohol-inked dominoes / tiles / glass before I coat them with a two-part epoxy resin. The resin alone causes the alcohol ink to blend and changes what I painted, completely ruining the piece.

- Asked by Patty on 31-Oct-13

This is mainly recommended for painting on canvas, so I wouldn't use it in the way you describe.

- Answered by MisterArt on 31-Oct-13

Can you use Kamar varnish as a textile medium. Can it seal and be washed from fabric?

- Asked by Tara on 22-Oct-13

This is a varnish, not a medium, and it is mainly used for oil or acrylic-on-canvas or board. It is not meant for fabric.

Excellent for retouch, or finish on oil paintings. Sheen can be controlled by manner of application. Easily removable...dries quickly...doesn't yellow ever. The only one I use and recommend to artists.
Rated by: Ellen M. H. in Smackover, AR
This is the ONLY clear coat we use in our shop! Every other that we have tried wrinkles the paint, especially on plastic surfaces. We can't live without it.

Krylon Kamar varnish works beautifully! I have used it as a finish on acrylics. More recently I used it on some "prints" of 140lb watercolor paper and the best product yet for this purpose!
