How are you finishing your paintings? In order to protect the surface and bring a high gloss shine, many painters like to give the finishing picture a few coats of varnish. Our preferred method has always been the Polycrylic Varnish in Gloss from Min Wax, but just lately we’ve also been hearing good things about this Triple Thick product from DecoArt.
Here’s an example of it being used and a review – looks pretty good! We feature several options in the store, all of the Polycrylic varnishes both in liquid and in sprays and also we’ve added this Triple Thick too. Certainly looks worth trying. While you are in the store, don’t forget to get yourself a really nice varnish brush too. You’ll be so glad you did.
As Annemarie says “Triple Thick does the trick!
After being told in high school that she was so bad at art that she should switch to another subject, Deby didn’t paint again for 35 years. Then a stroke released a new wave of creativity and she began exploring with dot painting, abstract and eventually acrylic pouring, and at last the joy of working with color returned.
You don’t need ‘talent’ to be an acrylic pouring artist – just enthusiasm, some basic instruction, and a willingness to try, fail and try again. Paint along with her and learn from her many mistakes, and you’ll soon make great art together.

Just found you. 🙂 Great instruction!!!
Is there a difference between using Min Wax Tripple Thick and DecoArt Triple Thick? Do you prefer one over the other?
Hi! That was great. Looking forward to trying a new product. I usually topcoat my art on Lazy susans with resin but I’m curious about the triple thick… How is it with heat resistance and discoloration over time? Is it durable?
