how to varnish an oil painting

DAILY PAINTING: I varnished four paintings today, using a mix of varnish and cold wax, which works well, giving the finished coat a satin sheen. You can see that I use a very nice watercolor brush for this purpose, which has a very soft touch and leaves no brush marks.

My husband designed and built a very nice varnishing rack for me, which works so well! The rack is set up in a dust-free area, and it is covered with cloth while the varnish is drying, so it always turns out beautifully!
