ABSOLUTELY THE BEST VARNISH!

As an artist and decorative painter, I have used a LOT of different varnishes. As a result, if there is a problem to be had with a varnish, I have probably experienced it.  

There the too thick varnishess.  The too thin varnishes.  The varnishes with fumes so bad you have to ventilate the whole city block. Brush marks.  Cloudy finish.  I even had one incredibly expensive varnish that discolored my projects almost immediately, leading to many Anglo Saxon words best not repeated here.

As a general rule, good varnishes are finicky and expensive.

The best varnish available...Liberty Varnish!

I hit a goldmine when Hofcraft ran a sale on Liberty Varnish.  I went ahead and ordered a bottle.  I wish I had bought it in five gallon increments!  Liberty varnish comes in gloss, satin, and matte finish.  Even in the ridiculous humidity of Louisiana I have not had any issues with it.  It doesn't run or clump.  It doesn't show nasty brush marks. It dries to the finish it says it will without clouding, even on muggy or rainy days. A very, very mild odor and water cleanup.   And it stays clear.  I ordered it the first time just because the sale price was low.  But I am very impressed with the product and have reordered several times since. And incredibly, the price is reasonable!

You can get Liberty varnish in gloss, satin, or matte finish in several sizes at Hofcraft.com.  and if you happen to be an SDP member, tell them in the comments on your order because you will get a discount. ( This is not an affiliate link at this time; I don't know if Hofcraft even does that.  If I find out they do, I'll edit the post and add one!)

SAD UPDATE:  THE PRODUCT IS NO LONGER BEING MADE.  UGH...GOT TO LOOK FOR A REPLACEMENT.

EVEN SADDER UPDATE:  HOFCRAFT.COM, WHO SOLD THE LIBERTY VARNISHES LINE, IS SHUTTING DOWN.  THE COMPANY WILL BE MISSED TERRIBLY.
