Chelsea Classical Studio Lavender Retouch Varnish is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This varnish is Excellent I bought this product based on recommendations. I have found it to be incredibly versital and easy to use. It is also very forgiving to a newer unexperienced artist. I have enjoyed using it and will continue to use this product for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this product I used it for the first time. Usually I use damar from other makers and without the Lavender. I will continue to use it. I wish it were more affordable but the Jerry Price is good and I will buy it . The quality is just really good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best brush cleaner ever! I have been using this brush cleaner for about three months just when I spent about $200 in purchasing a set of Robert Simmon's brushes. Just swish your brushes in this cleaner and the paint is gone! Cleaning the brushes after with soap is a breeze as there is just a small residue of paint left. My brushes are not fraying as the cleaner keeps them conditioned and in good form...This is a great product!...worth the up front investment, as it will preserves your brushes and your health as it is non-toxic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Best brush cleaner. Expensive though. Fantastic brush cleaner. This is better than anything else ever. Unfortunately expensive hoping the price goes down in the future. I'd buy it by the gallon if I could.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best fast drying medium I have ever used. I am sensitive to a lot of different things/smells. Liquin forget it even OMS bothers me if I leave the lid off too long. This stuff while it has a strong distinct odor it doesn't bother me at all. If I paint in thinner layers it is dry enough to paint again the very next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like have an apprentice clean your brushes We all know the worst part of painting is cleaning your brushes afterwards. While it's not quite like having someone do it for you, this stuff is the next best thing. I swish my dirty brush around into the Lavender Brush Cleaner, and it removes paint residue much more efficiently than the mineral spirits I've been using for years. Of course I haven't even mentioned the thing that sets this stuff apart, it's not a carcinogen, it's non toxic, and smell great. I really do love this stuff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Non-Toxic Product! I paint frequently and I am so glad to find this great non-toxic alternative to toxic solvents to clean my brushes. I have been using this for a few months. The product seems to have a conditioning quality as well, leaving my bristle brushes soft after using the product and cleaning. And...it has a pleasant scent. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I've been using this since November, and it not only works great, it smells fantastic! Recommend to all, but especially those with allergy/aversion to other solvents.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent medium It is a little expensive, but worth it. It gives the paint a nice gloss, and feels so much safer to use, like I can use it with the windows closed. I have trouble with the fat over lean rule, so this and the lean medium help me understand it. I mix even them together. They smell like lavender, so it helps my studio smell pleasant also.

You were kind enough to answer the question about varnishing an old oil painting that I asked but you said to use Chelsea Lavender Damar Varnish ... I was going to order the Retouch is there a difference in the two please? Which one should I order? Thanks

Asked by: patty74
Retouch varnish is a semi-permeable varnish that should only be used on recently painted paintings that have some sunken-in areas. Your painting was painted more than 30 years ago and does not fall into this category. Once an oil painting is finished there may arise glossy and matte or flat areas in the canvas. This condition is caused by a combination of the color used, the type and amount of thinning agent added and the absorption of the ground. Treating the sunken-in areas, once they are thoroughly dry to the touch, with a very thin coat of retouching varnish restores the gloss and color. After 6 to 8 months when the painting is dry to the touch that artist will apply a final layer of Damar Varnish over the retouch varnish. Because your painting is decades old and does not have any sunken-in areas and is dry you can go ahead and apply the final coat of Damar Varnish and skip the retouch varnish step which is not necessary for your situation. All oil paintings should be varnished. Oil paints dry to various degrees of gloss or matte, which can slightly alter the original color. The Final Varnish is used to permanently restore the original luster of the colors and unify the surface with a single finish. It also acts as the painting's protective layer. An oil painting should be dry for three to six months, depending on the thickness of the paint, before its FINAL varnish is applied. DAMAR VARNISH is the best for oil paintings.

Question on the Chelsea Lavender Damar Varnish, I have oil paintings I painted in 1977 can I use this to varnish them and do I have to clean them first. Also is this varnish for oils only can it be used on acrylic paintings and water mixable oils? Thanks.

Asked by: pattyls
Method 1: A soft, dry brush. The simplest way to clean your painting is to dust it, lightly, with a soft, dry brush. Make sure there is no paint or moisture on the bristles before you take it to your artwork. Softly swipe away dust and accumulated soil off the artwork. Make sure the brush you use is made of soft bristles. Method 2: Spit. Some museums and historians use saliva to clean paintings. Saliva is not the same structure as water and is less likely to damage the artwork by reacting with or washing away the elements. If you plan on using this method you’ll want to moisten a q-tip or cotton swab with saliva and lightly swipe the surface of the painting. Notes on this method: Do not eat or drink (other than water) for at least 30 minutes before doing this method. These can mess with your internal chemistry and affect whether or not your saliva will damage the artwork! Test the method on one corner of the piece before applying to the rest. You will be able to see the effect and determine whether it’s helping your specific painting or hurting. Now would be a good time to determine whether you’d like to invest the time into this method – it can be very time-consuming and you’ll need to see the cleaning through. Use a soft material, like cotton q-tips, to apply the saliva. Anything rougher, like cloths, can be abrasive and scratch the work. Sponges can also end up absorbing some of the natural oils and chemicals from the painting. After the dust has been removed from your oil painting you can varnish it with the Chelsea Lavender Damar Varnish. Please note that this particular varnish Chelsea Lavender Damar Varnish cannot be used on top of acrylic paintings. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.
