I've seen a few threads from a few years ago discussing varnishing colored pencil, but I thought I would see if anyone since has had any recent experiences. I'm working on a project and I do not want to use glass; I have an antique scatter frame with a mirror - I want to remove the mirror and use the frame for one of my works.
Thus, I am interested to see if anyone has had any positive varnishing experiences with Polychromos. Which varnish do you use?
Ester Roi uses the Golden Archival spray, so I bought some yesterday, but the bottle calls for an isolation coat. For my acrylic paintings I've used the soft gel gloss medium as an isolation coat under the Golden Polymer Varnish. Has anyone used either of those over polychromos?
Also, I am interested in using colored pencil on wood like Ivan Hoo. He uses some amazing looking glossy resins / lacquers over his pencils that are so beautiful! Anyone know how to create those effects?
Please share your recommendations for a varnish (if any) that works well with colored pencil.
Thank you for your suggestions!
