From a very general definition, Varnish is a type of liquid applied to the wood's surface. When it dries, it provides a hard coating, which offers waterproofing quality and enhances the surface's longevity and issues such as mould are eliminated. It comprises a resin, drying oil and a type of solvent that enables it to soak into the pores of the surface. There may also be an added colouring agent if the Varnish is tinted. It is used by countless craftsmen and property owners alike, and it can be used on both interior and exterior surfaces. Varnishes are available in different finishes at Buildworld, such as matte, semigloss and high gloss varieties. The high-gloss wood varnish available at Buildworld can be a great way to accentuate a piece of furniture or a highly crafted object such as crown moulding. Another advantage of choosing a gloss finish is that it generally offers a higher level of durability.
