so, I know I could post this elsewhere, but I've posted here from time to time and have had good luck.
Im in panic mode right now. I just satin varnished over gloss varnish....on accident! I bought a bunch of satin when i should've got gloss.

can i go back over with some gloss and have the 'brilliance and depth' return????
darn, I was preparing for an art show and now 3 of my pieces won't have the gloss. there isn't an art store here so Im going to have to hang them without it. I love that gloss. My best one, too, may get covered in Satin.

I have some gloss medium and varnish from liquitex (not the polymer varnish from Golden I prefer) Can I go over it with that????

Oh no!

I'll copy your thread to the Acrylics forum for the experts to weigh in.

But I think ive found some answers. I can go over it, or i could remove what i just did with turnpentine. I did put gac100 under the varnishing so I could do the turp, but im going to opt for just the gloss varnish on top.
