Tips for beginners
A few crucial pointers can make a big difference for beginners when using painting finishes like adhesive, fixative, and varnishes.
To avoid imperfections, make sure your surfaces are clean and dry before applying. Fixatives should only be used in well-ventilated areas after being tested on a scrap surface first. Apply adhesive evenly and firmly press your artwork. For the best protection when applying varnish, use even strokes and think about applying several thin coats.
NOTE: To get the best results and properly protect your artwork, always adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Hold the spray at the suggested distance from the surface and apply a fixative to your artwork in a well-ventilated area. Before using, make sure your artwork is free of dirt and dried out. Then, use the fixative product as directed by the manufacturer.
Shellac, varnish, and lacquer are all types of wood finishes, but their makeup and traits vary. Fast-drying lacquer creates a tough, glossy coating. Shellac is a resin-based finish that adds a warm, amber tint, while oil-based varnish offers a protective, amber-hued finish. Each finish has distinct qualities and uses.
