Q&A (1)
Q If applying silver leaf to an acrylic painting, do I need to varnish that first, then apply the leaf and then varnish with this?

As a acrylic painting is non absorabant you would not need to use this to seal the painting before adding the size for the silver leaf. Once you have added your silver leaf you can use this to varnish the whole painting.
