Solving a Century Old Problem for Oil Colorists...
Someplace in Portland-Gamblin Artist colors has solved a centuries old problem for oil colorists
wanting to protect their artwork. It used to take up to 6-12 months.
This made it hard to sell
artwork that was properly varnished. Varnish is the first defense of artwork and when not used
will expose the painting to direct and
Gamvar uses a synthetic and elastic replacement to damar which is inelastic. Thus when the
painting dries the varnish moves with the paint film so there is no
problem with cracking.
