Gives the work a finished look. Moreover, varnishing is able to hide defects and flaws made in the process of work. Protects the surface from the adverse effects of environmental factors (temperature changes, humidity, dust, dirt, etc.). The lacquered surface is more resistant to scratches, fading in the sun or swelling due to moisture. The protective film formed by the varnish prevents the material from breaking down.
Has a decorative effect. Modern varnishes can not only emphasize the brightness of colors and give a noble shine to your picture, box, figurine or any other product, but can also have various decorative properties – the effect of aging, have sparkles in their composition or make the surface velvety to the touch. If we are talking about painting, then the varnish emphasizes the small details of the picture, making the picture more voluminous.
When choosing a varnish, we recommend that you follow a number of simple rules: The varnish must be compatible with the material of the product. For example, not all acrylic lacquers adhere to metal. Any water-based varnish is not suitable for working with sweating. A high degree of adhesion of the lacquer to the coating material must be ensured. It is necessary to take into account the conditions under which the thing you made will be stored or used – indoors or outdoors, exposed to high temperatures or humidity, dust, etc.
In other words, it is necessary to evaluate how the protective properties of a particular varnish are suitable for solving your specific tasks . If the varnish performs a decorative function, then you need to clearly understand what result you want to get – glossy varnishes give glare, and matte ones retain the texture of wood or stone, making the material more durable and durable.
