Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

It's a wonderful painting - such vibrant color and terrific composition. The lively brushwork adds a lot. I personally would be afraid to risk such a lovely piece with unproven approaches, but then I guess someone has to be the one who proves them, eh? Best wishes!

Thank you! My painting was born in a battle with oil and acrylic painting materials. Color and brush strokes are full of such combat traces...
BTW, paint layers nature looks solid and paint bonded well. I want to varnish it after drying. I have spirit based acrylic and Dammar varnishes. Or I need to oil it out before varnishing?

It is up to you Alex, but Gamvar is good for both acrylic and oil paintings.

Dammar gives high gloss. I also have acrylic varnish, water glossy. Gamvar is hard to get here. Daler-Rowney synthetic varnish is available. I guess, it contains Ketone resin.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

Why not use a mixture of oil varnish with acrylic varnish? Maybe add a bit of Shoe polish to make sure it's removable?

"Shoe polish" is more or less a traditional medium. You can replace Cold Wax with it. Odd Nerdrum used something close, But after that, he switched his artistic fortune to Alkyds.
