This canvas varnishing service is an optional extra, available for attendees of our Fluid Art Workshop: Puddle Edition event!
Varnishing your canvas is an optional extra, as your stretched canvas painting can still be displayed as-is. However, there are many benefits to varnish!
- Intensifies colours in your painting and can make it appear ‘brighter’ and ‘more saturated’
- Extra protection from dust, dirt and UV light. All paintings can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, but varnish creates a more even surface so that dust does not settle into the texture of your artwork as much.
- Adds a glossy finish for a more professional look (unvarnished paintings look more matte)
The cost is only R50 per 20x30cm canvas varnishing. This includes at least 5 coats of varnish applied over several days to ensure a crisp, clean and professional result!
