Talc Powder and Glossy Varnish

  • If Cell Magic was used, you need to remove the oil from the painting before varnishing.

  • Once the paint has dried, sprinkle a medium amount of Talc Powder onto painting.

  • With a gloved hand, gently rub talc into painting until paste forms and oil is completely absorbed.

  • Remove Talc Powder using a damp rag or paper towel.

  • If Talc Powder remains in any crevices, use a brush with a soft plastic bristle to remove it, then wipe away any residue with a damp rag.

  • Once dry, apply a small amount of Glossy Varnish to the painting. Using a paint brush, evenly distribute the varnish to create a thin coat.

  • Let paining Dry for 24 hours. Apply a second coat of varnish if desired and allow to dry.

Pro Tip: The needle tool in the Tool Kit can also help remove stubborn oil/talc residue from small holes in the painting.
