Wipe-On Varnish

R 230.00 ZAR

Our Wipe-On Varnish is polyurethane-based specifically formulated to be heat and waterproof as well as UV resistant. It provides a strong, thin surface finish with a pleasing satin texture and is easy to use. It is available in Matt, Satin and Gloss finishes.


Prepare the surface of the guitar or neck well. You might want to sand with 120 and then 220 grit sandpaper, depending on how smooth your surface is. Make sure that all dust from sanding is removed by wetting a cloth with turpentine. You can then apply the Wipe-On Varnish with a lint-free cotton cloth, using a light steady stroke in one direction only, overlapping each stroke with the next. Apply 2x coats as a minimum.


Avoid back and forth strokes as you would with a brush and also resist touching up any spots you might have missed, leave them for the next coat. For a perfect finish, sand lightly with 400 grit sandpaper before applying the final coat. Use mineral turpentine for thinning and cleaning.
