Based on prior TMP discussions, I transitioned from Dulcoat to Windsor & Newton professional matte varnish a few years ago. I've been very happy with the performance of the W&N but it has been hard to find of late. I'm happy to report Blick art supplies has standard-sized cans (400 ml) in stock and available for $10.98 USD. Postage is free for a total order over $59. USD I just ordered multiple cans as I don't ever want to run out!

Thanks for the info.

And note that W&N have a professional and general grade varnish. As Gray Bear said, use the professional grade for your finely painted minis.

I agree, you can't beat this product.
Blick Art Supplies is a pleasure to do business with.

I bought a case of 12 last time I ordered just to avoid the issue of hunting around for new cans. Best varnish out there

My varnish of choice for pretty much all occasions.

Had to wait a few weeks on my last order from Blick. They are out, now, and project restock in June according to the website.
