Gamvar Satin

Posted by Loraine Mayne on November 10, 2019 at 3:16pm 2 Comments

I have a large panel that i used Gamblin cold wax and oil paint, in a 50/50 ratio......let everything dry and painted on a coat of Gamvar satin, and I could see lines from the brush, so I let that dry a few days and did another coat with a foam roller, which made it more even but still see some uneven areas. There are areas which have thicker paint than others, so my question is, should I put on another coat ?
