    Hi Spence, I've always been happy with Humbrol enamel.
    Shopkeepers no longer sell them here in Rome (they sell all over Italy) because the EU has banned them. Apparently they contained harmful substances.
    I still have to find a valid alternative but it may be that they are not prohibited there.

    Hi Spence I have been using a clear yacht varnish for several years now and it is very good. Believe it or not it is from the Poundshop, Mine was a pound a tin but they have lately upped their prices.
    The epoxy they sell is also very good and is now ยฃ1.50 per pack.

    What varnish for Humbrol Paints guys? I am using this and another oil based paint. I am confused as to what to use because I have read you can't use some varnishes over certain types of paint. Polyurethane, acrylic, water based - well muddled! Also which brands for non-yellowing please? Interested to know ones you have had experience of. Thanks for any replies as always. Spence.
