Extra Pale Varnish

An oil-based, protective varnish that's delicately pale in colour

An oil-based, extremely pale varnish that reduces yellowing and preserves the natural appearance of the wood.

Our Extra Pale Varnish is a unique and clear traditional solvent varnish, made with selected resins and oils for an extremely pale colour. This preserves the natural appearance of the wood with a durable, stain resistant film, enhancing and protecting the natural grain of the wood.

Available in dead flat and eggshell, Extra Pale Varnish dramatically reduces yellowing compared with other oil-polyurethane varnishes.
