Hello everyone,

Does anyone out there know of a gloss varnish that is “clear”, l have used in the past “yacht gloss varnish” but it leaves a very slight brown tint when applied to a white surface. Is there anything out there that leaves a nice clear crisp gloss varnish?

Thanks guys

Dont know if you want to brush or spray ,Rust-Oleun spray gloss is very good as long as you don't try to put it on to thick (milky sheen)but if you follow the instructions thin coats and drying time between coats it is a good finish. Cheers Marky

Whenever I want a clear varnish that is a crisp finish I always use wilkinson's own quick dry clear varnish, either put on by brush or thinned down and spray on brush on dries in about an hour spray on takes a bit longer leave overnight to recoat😊
