Zelcol Varnish 100ml Satin

Zelcol Varnish is a 100ml product designed for use with oil colors to create a protective transparent finish on the artwork. It consists of drying oils, a resin, and a thinner or solvent. Here are the key features and uses of this varnish:


  1. Protective Transparent Finish: Zelcol Varnish is applied over oil paintings to create a protective, transparent layer. This layer helps shield the paint surface from dirt, dust, and other environmental factors, preserving the artwork and enhancing its longevity.
  2. Composition: The varnish contains drying oils, a resin, and a thinner or solvent, which work together to form a protective and durable coating on the painting.


  1. For Oil Colors: Zelcol Varnish is specifically designed for use with oil colors. It is not intended for use with other types of paints.
  2. Drying Time: To ensure the oil painting is fully dry and stable, it is recommended to wait 6-12 months before applying the varnish. This waiting period allows the oil paints to cure properly before sealing them with the varnish.
  3. Removability: The varnish can be removed from the painting using white spirits or other suitable solvents. This allows artists to clean and revarnish their artwork if needed or desired.
  4. Finish Options: Zelcol Varnish is available in two finish options: Gloss and Satin. Gloss varnish provides a shiny, reflective finish, while Satin varnish offers a more subdued, semi-gloss appearance.
