Retouching varnishes and intermediate varnishes


Retouching varnish

based on mineral spirit


Intermediate varnish for painting in oil. Colourless; non-yellowing; fast drying; does not solve just-dried oil colours; it is possible to add a final varnish based on mineral spirit at once; the dried varnish layer remains soluble in turpentine substitute (50019).




    • Ideal for temporary protection of oil paintings that are not yet finished; smoothes out the dull areas that often occur in oil paintings (matt parts less in binder); also gives tempera undercoats the nature of an oil colour.
    • Shake well before use.
    • The product is ready to use, but can be diluted with e.g. turpentine substitute 50019
    • May only be applied with a suitable varnish brush after the picture surface has dried, i.e. after 4 weeks at the earliest.
    • Please clean tools as soon as possible with e.g. turpentine substitute 50019 or brush cleaner 50051 / 50052.
    • The dried varnish layer remains soluble in turpentine substitute 50019 over a long period. It is possible to overpaint it with oil colours or add a final varnish based on mineral spirit.
    • Products based on mineral spirit cannot be mixed with those based on alcohol like alcoholic retouching varnish 50020.
    • Close immediately after use.
    • Store in a cool and dry place.
