Italian Satin Varnish

From 20,00 

Italian Satin Varnish consists of an oil varnish applied as the final layer in the varnishing process of classical stringed instruments, such as the violin, viola, cello, and double bass.  

This varnish provides a beautiful, transparent, and resistant film. The film obtained has a low gloss, which results in a satin silken aspect that maintains transparency. 

Before use, it is recommended to test on pieces or parts of wood like those of the instrument to be treated to predict the colour tone that can be achieved in each case. 

It must be used as the last layer.

Application Guidelines

These are short, general indications. For more detailed instructions, please download the Technical Data Sheet available for this product.


Shake the product well before each use to homogenise the liquid. Solid particles deposited in the bottom must be integrated into the liquid. This varnish can be applied by hand (with gloves) or by brush and is ready for use; there is no need to dilute it before usage.  


Once the varnish is applied, it should be exposed to natural UV light for about 6-10 hours, as this allows us to control the intensity of the light and the drying times. 


Complete drying of each layer is essential to guarantee the quality and durability of the final coating and to avoid future surface defects. 

Security and Storage

The product is non-flammable under regular storage, handling, and use conditions. It is also not classified as hazardous to the environment. Keep the product away from drain surfaces and groundwater. 



Keep the container tightly closed in a cool place and avoid direct light exposure, heat sources, radiation, static electricity, and contact with food. Under these conditions, the product remains stable for more than two years.  

Over time, a white solid deposit appears at the bottom of the bottle. It must be incorporated into the liquid by shaking before use.

Once opened, the remaining product inside the bottle can form a superficial skin. This skin must be carefully removed before using the product again. Do not mix with liquid varnish. If necessary, filter the varnish.
