I've just had some correspondence with Alan about retouch varnish. The stuff I use is Artist standard even though it came with my first ever Artisan order. This is my reply to Alan
'Alan I owe you a huge apology. When I first discovered Artisan i order everything in a big parcel. Special brushes, paints, through to varnishes. I was very excited to escape from the turpentine used by other artists. One of the items was the re-touch varnish and you are quite right it is not specifically water soluble. Cos it was the same descript bottle I did not bother reading the label. And cos i apply the varnish away from my studio it did not have any offensive odour in that location.
Again my apologies.
I don't know if you involve yourself with 'Wet Canvas' but they did an informative article on the subject.
Best wishes Jack'

Jack, we all do that once and a while. It's a brave man that admits it. We did touch on the subject of retouch varnish in the varnishing a painting thread here: http://watersolubleoils.forumotion.com/water-soluble-oils-f5/how-to-varnish-a-painting-completed-in-water-soluble-oils-t4.htm Smile
