Sealing Varnish is a varnish of Manila copal and elemi gum (a plasticizer). Dries fast to a hard finish, resists turpentine and mineral spirits, sands easily, making it ideal for sealing wood panels and gesso. The properties of this varnish are 1) relatively hard resin (copal) used in the formulation; 2) rapidly penetrates into the pores of wood and other porous materials; 3) easy to apply whether by brushing or spraying; 4) complete and rapid drying (due to the low solvent retention); and 5) easy to sand. Thin with denatured or ethyl alcohol. (26% resin w/v)
Sealing Varnish has a resin concentration of 26% w/v. W/V means Weight/Volume. This is commonly used when a solid is dissolved in a liquid. For example, 10% w/v means 100 grams of resin is present for every 1 liter of solvent. For Sealing Varnish 26% w/v—in this solution 260 grams of Manila copal and elemi gum are present for every 1 liter of solution.
Apply by brushing or spraying to the surface. Sealing Varnish can be diluted with denatured or ethyl alcohol up to 20%.
