Right-Step is a non-toxic, water-based varnish that dries clear to the touch in 15 minutes. Right-Step is available in matte, satin and gloss finishes. When dry it is odorless, durable and does not yellow with age. Originally developed for the decorative artist, JW's Right-Step varnish has earned the reputation as the #1 choice for artists of all mediums and levels of expertise. Right-Step may be applied over oil or acrylic paints and stains with good adhesion. Right-Step will NOT BECOME TACKY or sticky when exposed to a high level of humidity! The "high-solid" content produces a tough, protective coat over any object to which it is applied.
