Finishing my Casein Painting using Kamar Varnish

Comments about Krylon Kamar Varnish:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

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.

from Ontario, Canada
A painting I had been working on for some time was completely ruined by this product. After following the directions and shaking it for a few minutes I went to spay the painting, it was fine until mid way it started spitting out giant globs of varnish. My painting is now completely ruined, hours and effort all gone to waste because of this product. I am obviously never buying or using it again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

use it to seal my paintings on copper
from Goldendale WA
I used this product for years on my watercolors. It sealed them and eliminated the need for glass. Never yellowed or cracked, I now us it on my paintings on copper with the same success
