Art Product I'm Loving #behindthepalette


For about 5 months now, I've been finishing off all my paintings with a high gloss varnish. Best. Decision. Ever. The resulting shine makes the colors even brighter. I first decided to experiment after seeing these super glossy wooden panel paintings of seashells at a home decor shop. I loved the chic and fancy look of them and immediately starting researching the different ways to give my work the same glossy finish. I've been playing with different varnishes ever since. I can't say I have a brand favorite yet, but I'm usually a big fan of all things Liquitex, and this is the one currently on my art table. 


The success of my gloss varnish experiment has also led me to try out more new materials, most recently pastels and wood panels. Stay tuned for exciting things to come!!
