100% Sandarac Varnish used for Tintypes, Ambrotypes, and Glass Negatives.
This varnish is made with 100% pure sandarac resin which is dissolved then micro filtered to remove additional all and particulates. Only pure 95% ethanol is used to ensure that no harsh denaturants harm the image during the most dreaded step of the wet plate process. The resin, alcohol and steam distilled French lavender oil are balanced so that the varnish can be applied at room temperature, then heated to dry.
One of the main advantages of this varnish is that the final coating tends to give slightly higher gloss over shellac varnishes. This is a favorite varnish of many wet plate photographers making images today.
