Amber is the finest of all resins. Just a few drops mixed into your colors will make them more transparent and radiant. Glaze and layer with colors mixed with amber for a more 3D look. Pictures painted with amber do not require varnishing since the color is protected by the resinous amber—paint film becomes plastic, neither brittle or friable. Amber is one of the finest varnishes in the world today and may be used to protect painting as soon as the film is dry to the touch. There is no need to wait 6 months since amber will naturally contract with the painting. Just mix in with solvent and brush on. After two coats your varnished painting will have a natural luminescence and be protected for generations of enjoyment.
