What particular varnish(es) do you use in a BLO/MS/varnish finish mix? And why?
Greetings all. A quick query re finishes. I’m becoming a fan, I believe, of the 1:1:1 mix of boiled linseed oil, mineral spirits, and varnish for many projects. Thus far I’ve only used one particular varnish in the recipe—some spar varnish I happened to have on hand. But it’s now gone, and I’m soon gonna need something to make the next batch of finish. I realized that most of the things I’ve read about this practice just describe the recipe as including “varnish”, which actually leaves a lot of variation amongst the possibilities. So I thought I’d toss this up to the crowd and see what I can learn.
