What causes my Gamvar varnish to crawl and not cover some areas of my paintings?I brush it on.
I've had that happen using traditional damar varnish as well as Gamvar. I believe it may be caused by a paint surface that's too oily. I've started to lightly wipe down the surfaces of my paintings with OMS prior to varnishing and that seems to have fixed the problem.
This is the painting I was referring to, before I stripped the orange peeled damar varnish and re-applied with Gamvar.
