Amber Varnish Clear
A specially formulated, high concentration of dissolved amber resin in linseed, walnut or poppy oil for use as a general painting medium. Designed for mixing with light colored pigments or tube paints.

When dry, amber varnish is impervious to common solvents, preserving the colors under a hard yet flexible lustrous surface.

Colors applied with amber medium require no finishing varnish since they are encased in a resinous protection.

There is no greater insurance of permanence than with the use of amber varnish, as attested to by the works of the Old Masters we so enjoy which are as vivid today as when they were first created.

Artists using this medium will be able to reproduce in their paintings the transparency and depth found in the paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque era.

Available in Linseed, Walnut or Poppy.

These mediums contain no driers, are solvent free and are all natural.
