Interesting stuff. Thanks for posting it!

I have painted with watercolors on oil paper before and quite liked the results. I never did think to keep going with oils on top, but I have a few failed pieces that I am going to experiment with now.

Recently, I use lots of acrylic paint and acrylic varnish with oil paint.

I get weird looks when I tell people how fun it is messing with art stuff. :lol:

Can you elaborate on this? I mean, plenty of varnishes are already acrylic resin in solvent. If you mean water based "varnishes" like those of liquitex gloss medium/varnish, that'd be interesting. I've always suspected that the correct way to varnish wmo's (at least those with an emulsifier, say Holbein) is to use an acrylic medium isolation coat followed by traditional varnish. Unfortunately, I haven't painted a piece I despise enough to offer it as a sacrificial lamb. Ha.
