Pukington Posted April 16, 2016 Share #1 Posted April 16, 2016 Hey guys! I've had a bit of a search on the forum and am a bit overwhelmed. So please forgive me for asking a common question. I've come to the point on my Albatross build that the instructions simple say "Varnish Hull". Brilliant. That's all it gives me. I currently live in Australia and am seeking a good varnish for finishing the hull of my build: http://imgur.com/0tCSVZX What varnish do people suggest? Do i thin down the coats? I'm guessing sanding between coats obviously, but di i thin the varnish to begin with? I worked on a tall ship last summer and used a non synthetic oil varnish called Dek Solije, it's a two parter, part one is a matte undercoat, and part two a gloss overcoat. It leaves wood looking gorgeous. Unfortunately my cheap Destructo kit isn't a top deal of wood quality, but i'm still tempted to use it. Here it is: http://www.deksolje.com/index.php?langue=en&page=range-protect-varnish I could probably borrow a bit But if anyone else suggests some nice simple varnish i can purchase off the shelf then i'm happy to use that instead. Thanks for any pointers, much appreciated! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
