Great No Mess Way to Varnish Paintings
By Star City Painter
from Roanoke, Virginia
Comments about Winsor & Newton Artist Picture Varnishes:
Used this Winsor & Newton Gloss Spray Varnish to protect an oil painting done on canvas board. Simple and easy to use product from a name well known in art materials. Spray goes on evenly and drys in hours. Additional coats are easy to apply over the initial coat. Left a glossy, clear coat that really brought out the details in the painting - especially the darker hues. Highly recommended for those who want to protect their art without the hassle of mixing, brushing, and cleaning up afterwards. Do recommend spraying outdoors in a well ventilated area and keeping the canvas flat until the varnish dries.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use to final varnish oil paintings
from Washington DC
I have never used spray varnish before. I ususally brush on my picture varnish. This product seems to work very well and produce a nice even varnish film that dried reliably to a satin finish as advertised.I don't know anything about competitive alternatives so cannot comment on whether or not this was a good deal. This survey requires me to answer that question so I have answered as neutrally as possible.It does NOT have directions on the can: just a lot of warnings. The WN website did not have directions either.
The best I've used
By Art and Wellness
from Honey Brook, Pa
This spray varnish is my favorite, the only one I use now. Perfect for refreshing an oil painting in process, it freshens up those next-day dull spots to their former color and sheen. This spray is not too glossy when applied properly, and also makes a fairly new painting (too young for final varnish) exhibition ready. I count on this stuff!
from Santa fe, NM
Very nice gloss, stinky for hours that the challenge.

IF YOU ARE INTO TACKY...
from North Bend, Oregon
This says it is usable as a varnish coat on acrylic. Applied it to a well dried acrylic over gesso surface and 2 weeks later it is still tacky. So if you WANT a forever tacky finish this is the product for you!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
works great for me
from Northern Nevada
I am an artist working mostly in acrylic on canvas. I have been using Winsor & Newton spray varnishes for years. They are consitent in application and in the finished product. I have tried other brands and find this to be the best for the buck.
