Comments about Krylon Kamar Varnish:
This stuff works great! I have used other brands and keep coming back to this. Unlike brush on varnish it does not bubble, and through thin coats I can build the depth and sheen I want. I have used Gloss but prefer semi-gloss. It protects, seals and finishes my oils and acrylics, and even watercolors beautifully. The nice thing is it is retouchable, meaning I can tweak a painting and then apply my finish spray again. All my colors look rich and gleaming.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have used Krylon Kamar varnish for many years, and find it a valuable varnish for a newly painted oil. It acts like a retouch varnish, and is good at restoring the oil brilliance until it is time for the final Damar varnish when the oil is completely dry.

I have used this product for years!
from Ruidoso, New Mexico
The fact that I have used this product for years, speaks for itself. The convenience of spraying on varnish versus using a brush to stroke it on, is invaluable. Time is important to me. I get nice even coverage on my work and at an affordable cost. I have no complaints. If I did I wouldn't use it. Unfortunately I live in a small village and there is no other way to obtain it except by purchasing on line.

Finishing my Casein Painting using Kamar Varnish
from Webster, WI
AS a casein painter I want the most beautiful luster and luminosity of my finished paintings, I have used Kamar Varnish for 10 years and no problems and is archival that is important to your customer. If you use be sure to do with plenty of ventilation and do not breathe directly, safety first.
Krylon Kamar Varnish For Beautiful Finsihed Luminosity
I am a casein painter using the Dick Blick Cradled HB Panel for my painting surface, and after my painting is finished, I let my casein paint cure for 24 hours, then lightly use Krylon Kamar Varnish. I apply this varnish in a well ventilated room or weather permitting outside for proper safety handling of this material. Do not breathe this vapor aerosol in a closed room. Be safe.

not quite what I was looking for
I don't have anything against the product, I got it since I was interested in a varnish that allowed reworking. I'm experimenting and it didn't quite work for what I was trying to do: after applying it to a very smooth surface I tried to paint over with Holbein Duo Aqua Soluble oils but thin brush strokes reveal the granulated texture of the spray varnished surface and the paint is getting 'stopped' by the texture, it doesn't really flow easily.. Maybe I'm mixing the wrong materials, or applying to the wrong surface, I will keep experimenting.

A cut above other spray varnishes.

Works great !
Very easy to use.
I really like this spray varnish.
I use this product to spray small oil paintings I sell.I'm very happy with this varnish spray. I read a recommendation for it by another artist and tried it and I've been using it for a while now. It doesn't leave an extreme gloss on paintings but instead is sort of like a mat gloss. Makes the colors that may have dulled come back to life. Says it can be used during or right after being painted or later on and I usually use it right after the painting is completed since I have to ship quickly.
