What is the best way to fix uneven varnish on a painting that is causing non-uniform glare?
Medium: Oil (Dark Colors)
Varnish: Damar - High Gloss
Problem: Initial layer brushed on too thick and at an angle, some varnish 'ran'
I want to be able to even out the glare and maybe go to a flat varnish since the picture is a portrait and there is a lot of dark areas, some appear flat, some appear shiny.
Can the varnish be sanded down evenly with a light sand paper and then re-varnished with a matte spray?
