Buy ready-made damar to avoid various hassles
By Suitcase Murphy
Interesting to try once, but in future I would just buy ready-made damar varnish. I experienced several problems. The damar crystals are within a cloth bag with drawstring at top, within the quart can. Instructions say to hang the string over edge of can, and add the turpentine, then close the lid to give it a few days to dissolve. The first problem came when I realized that, due to capillary action, varnish had "wick-ed" up the string, then down the outside of the can, and onto the floor. Damar is really sticky and not much fun to get on your hands or objects that must be cleaned. Finally, I removed the bag and tried to let it drip into the can of varnish. The problem is, it holds a good bit of thick varnish and takes time to drip. So you really need some sort of funnel arrangement to hold the bag above the can. That takes some devising. Also, it seems to me that the "cut" of the final varnish, that is, the viscosity based on how much solvent it contains, is not well controlled in making your own varnish this way. So you have have to modify it with more turpentine. I find that a regular quart can is not a good storage container for damar varnish, which I would prefer to have in a glass bottle. So now I must find 1 or 2 such bottles, and figure out how to transfer varnish from the "drippy" can to the bottles, without dripping the sticky stuff all over. I saved the bag in another can until I get time to deal with it: add more turps to retrieve more varnish from it. While interesting to do this once, I would not opt to do it again.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
the best matte oil varnish
from Seattle, WA
I have been using this matte oil varnish on my acrylic paintings for years. It is a predictable varnish that I can trust. I do wish it came in larger size bottles. I just buy a dozen at a time and that works fine.
Merchandise was ads advertised and good price was received

Damarvarnish is difficult to use. I realize why I have not bought it for a while. I will probably use it sparingly.
