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 ?

"I observed an old, almost dead Oak tree. Deeply gashed,
it had managed to survive it's wound. A scar, unhealed in some places, spiraled upward as the tree continued to grow. Its relevance informed me. A line, drawn boldly with force, to mimic the tree's attempt to endure.

Hello,I understand that generally when using oil paint and cold wax you're supposed to mix wax to paint in a 30-70 to 50-50 ratio.  If you are using home made paint made with walnut oil and pigment, do you need to change the proportions (as in, more…Continue
