So I have recently been taught about oil painting and I really enjoyed it so I am now trying to get everything I need to do it myself, I'm having trouble finding the varnish that you mix with the oil paints?

I used to get mine from a local art supplier when I did AS Art. Although, I'm sure you can get it on Amazon or even WHSmith.

I can't find any on the whsmith website, amazon seem to have some, I wasn't sure about ebay. I know cassart do different ones but you have to pay for postage. There's so many brands and different types and I don't know which one I used before, it was damar varnish but a lot of them keep saying apply after you've painted but the one I used you mix in with the oil paint to paint with
