Gamblin Gamvar Satin Varnish is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mistake varnish I used it as I would any varnish, applied with dry clean brush - vertically on a 4 x 5 foot canvas - varnish not dripping. The next day when completely dry I went to look - and I could see every mark made by the varnish. I called Gamlin and they said the Satin varnish must be applied extremely sparingly and with a feathered approach. Not sure if that requirement is stated on the bottle. For repair, they said I have to use Gamsol in a tedious process to remove the varnish. I'm not sure what I am going to do - but I did apply some Butcher's paste wax over the varnish streaks in a small area and the lines of varnish are no longer visible. I may do this instead of buying the Gamsol and spending more time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gamblin Gamvar Satin Varnish is the way to go Satin varnish is the easiest way to seal an oil painting. This product shows the best quality of your work and is easy to remove, if you want to make a change to your painting at a later date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the consistency of normal artist varnish. I am a professional nautical artist who has painted for over seventy years and have used varnishes during that length of time. I could not find my normal varnish ( Winsor & Newton ) and I ordered this Gamblin Satin Varnish thinking the fairly high price placed it in a professional category. Normally I spray a varnish on a painting, but the Gamblin directions say to apply this varnish with a brush after mixing. This varnish is of a thin watery consistency and after it dried the varnish was streaked with brush marks. The result was so bad that I had to remove the varnish. I will never use it again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. I bought this a month ago, and I had trouble with streaking, and irregular coverage. I contacted Gamblin, and received instructions about what might have gone wrong and how to make sure it is applied correctly. I had to remove all of it from a rather large painting. I probably did put it on too thickly, (but I've never had problems with Gamblin varnishes before). If it's easy to do it incorrectly they need to include instructions with the product. I personally liked the old version of their varnish, where I was able to easily add some cold wax, distribute it evenly in the jar, and was able to get a good finish that wasn't too glossy. That is why I ordered the "Satin" rather than "Gloss"in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on easy, and removes nicely. I have worked with a few varnishes that were touchy in application, either too syrupy, or foamed to easy. Others may be stubborn, when removing. The Gamblin Satin, is a good formulation for these concerns. Also, if is a good compromise between gloss and mat. You can get nice clear dark tones, without lots of annoying glair in the highlights. It dries quickly and cleanly. Brushes clean well too. And it doesn't stink! :-)
