We do not recommend using any varnish in between layers of paint due to the possilbity of compromising the paint film should the painting be cleaned. Please read the following article regarding the use of resins in painting:

 I just received the NP sealing varnish and I really like the non-absorbency of it. I experimented with using it as an isolation layer over several layers of oil/copal paint. I see many possibilities for effect with such a non-absorbent (similar to shellac but less brittle) layering technique. Since this varnish was created for sealing the ground for subsequent oil painting, is the practice of using the sealing varnish as an isolation varnish sound? I must add that I am painting on rigid supports using the fat over lean rule progressively.


Thanks in advance,

Shirley Bales
