Getting ready to varnish
When you’re getting ready to apply varnish, all surfaces must be clean and dust-free. Varnish can pick up on imperfections much more easily than paint. If you’re applying Coo-Var varnish over existing paintwork, a quick dusting and wipe are usually all that is needed.
If you’re working with a new surface, especially new wood, make sure everything is sanded and ready to take the varnish as best as possible. Please make sure you have everything you need by visiting our tools & accessories section.
