I have just found this fantastic product in an art supply shop.

 On the back it says:  Apply to oil paintings as soon as touch dry. Use to bring out  colors and promote adhesion of the next color. Protect oil painting until dry enough for varnishing. Isolate underpainting before applying oil colors. Restore dull or sunken in colors.

This is a spray, they also had a paint on version. So simple and just looks like varnish. Great when you want to sell your paintings without having to wait so long.

As Nolan says, this is NOT the final varnish. Depending on the amount of oil paint applied it can take from a minimum of 4 months to 10 months before the painting is dry enough to apply the final varnish.

What happens to an oil painting if we do not varnish it.   Does the white become yellow?
