It can also be used to reduce the absorbency of traditional gesso and chalk grounds. It is based on a recipe used by watercolorists of the 19th century.

Can be used in combination with the Crystal Water Varnish to "fix" the paint layer before applying Crystal Water Varnish.

Contains natural ingredients. Does not contain organic solvents. Can be thinned with water.

DIRECTIONS

Clean brushes with warm water after using this product. If Lac Water Varnish dries on brushes, it can be removed by soaking brushes in household ammonia. To ensure desired results, always make a test piece for your particular application and surface.

APPLICATION

Apply with a wide flat, soft-hair brush or spray on with an atomizer.
