Cold weather varnish


Enthusiastic about Wooden Canoes
It warms up nicely with the lights and heater on in the garage and the varnish flows well. But the temp. will dip just below freezing during the drying time, should I be concerned?


I think you may be able to varnish. Maybe keep the heat down some so to avoid an extreme range?. I recently did some varnishing in the high 40's F or low 50's and it worked fine. I thinned the stuff a little.

I have had problems once with dew on new varnish. It left the varnish cloudy, but all I had to do is scuff and recoat.
