just curious how to adjust the sheen of regalrez 1126?
Answers and Comments
The easiest is to purchase regalrez varnish that contains a
matting agent. A Google search showed that it can be purchased in gloss, satin,
Some make their own by adding small amounts of microcrystine
wax. This is best done by melting the wax on a hot plate and adding it to the
varnish well away from the heat source. You can then heat up a pan of water,
remove it from the heat source and place the jar of varnish containing the wax
if you need more heat to encourage complete solution. Make sure that the whole
operation is done in a place of very good ventilation and where there is no
open flame or source of high heat. The varnish will remain cloudy in solution
and some wax may precipitate. Personally, I have never been very happy with
I prefer to just use lower resin concentration solutions and
the keep brushing as the varnish sets. This is tiring but one can create
surfaces with lower sheen.
