Zest-it Damar Picture Varnish is made from Zest-it and Gum Damar. Gum Damar dissolves naturally in Zest-it in about 2 to 3 days without any assistance, apart from the occasional stir. This type of varnish is also referred to as a 'spirit varnish' or 'cold cut varnish' in some written works, because heat is not used to dissolve the resin. Once dissolved the solution is allowed to rest for 3 more days before filtering. Filtering is necessary to remove any minute particles that remain in suspension in the solution, the filtered varnish is bright and crystal clear.

The Zest-it Damar Picture Varnish is used to protect a dried oil painting from the ravages of the atmosphere and dries to a gloss finish. Picture varnish is always best applied in multiple thins coats as opposed to one thick layer. Drying between each coat is recommended for optimum protection and finish. Choose a warm, dry airless day for ease of drying and less dust.
