About this deal

If cissing occurs, rub onto affected area with a damp cloth to break the surface tension and re-apply. Wooden floors • quarry tiles • cork tiles • slate • flag stones • wooden worktops • furniture • shelving. Only 1 thin coat is needed, however, if it is going to be in a high traffic area, I would apply 2 coats of Polyvine allowing each coat to dry thoroughly.

This has come again on another painters forum, just wondering if you ever did get to the bottom of this? The basic idea is that you protect a less durable emulsion paint with a very durable clear coat. The clear varnish takes the hits, preserving the integrity of the paint underneath.A water based white gloss paint is as abrasion resistant as an acrylic decorator’s varnish. We have been advised over and over, an extra coat of gloss paint is by far the most effective way to achieve the most resistance. One product, no incompatability issues.


Is this user error, or over-hyped expectations? Looking closer, according to the spec sheet, you should apply 2 coats of satin varnish with a synthetic brush before applying the dead flat varnish. (I should have thought about that as this is the same principle when applying matt or satin Dulux Diamond glaze over a gloss basecoat.) So I didn’t go by the book and I also rolled the stuff. So it must have been me, I neglected to follow the full spec. Hi I’m wanting to use wallpaper in my bathroom. Do you do a waterproof varnish or only water resistant? Like Colin, using either of these varnishes over chalky paints isn’t something I would recommend. Not only do you loose the natural chalky look of the paint but they also seem to darken the colour by at lease a shade or two. Word to the wise – if you’ve created an ‘antiquing’ effect over darker coloured chalky paints then the effect may be lost when the colour changes as the glaze doesn’t darken in equal measure.As wallpaper experts, you’d think we have some magical, overly-complicated technique as our answer. But really, the answer is simple: to make your wallpaper last, we recommend Polyvine Decorators Varnish. I have bought satin wax flat Polyvine by mistake. It says its for mdf etc. Can I use it on my wallpaper?

No longer the wallpaper of the 70’s, these days, any classic and high-quality wallpaper should be able to withstand most home conditions. However, there are circumstances when you may want a bit more protection to your wallpaper design: for example, if your bathroom is more humid than most, or if your kids are completely immersed in playing on their Sian Zeng magnetic wallpaper. What can you do to seal and protect your wallpaper? Can I sand and paint over decorators varnish? I am worried that once applied reprinting might be very difficult maybe needing paint stripper to remove it.We are Traditional Painter - the UK’s leading Hand Painted Kitchen and Furniture specialist painters. Just wondering if you ever got to the bottom of this? I’m a complete novice when it comes to painting furniture and I just painted my first two chairs with a lovely burgundy Annie Sloan chalk paint. Only problem I have now is that I really want to maintain that chalky, dead flat look whilst still protecting the paint. Any thoughts? Heat resisting varnish, not sure there is such a thing. Up to normal high temperatures (think the hottest radiator) water borne paints will perform fine. Acrylic varnish like a Polyvine would not yellow which is probably an advantage to protect the integrity of your artwork.
