Actually, this was not Ronseal quick drying varnish, it was Ronseal Ultra Tough Hardglaze clear varnish - Barcode 5010214519019
Quick drying varnish would have been of little benefit considering the hard gloss finish that I needed. I needed the varnish to flow, which it did admirably, however, because of the high solvent content, (and this was only a small tin of 250ml.) as I used the varnish, it became thicker and thicker. After applying the first coat to seal the grain followed by rubbing down, the second coat would not flow as I would have wished and it began to drag, leaving a non uniform finish. Because of the solvent in the varnish, I did not have the opportunity to use a suitable thinning agent.
In the end, I had to sand off the surface completely and start again. This was a very special project for a friend and I must admit that it was difficult to achieve the finish that I wanted. Maybe my standards are too demanding, or was there something amiss with this batch?
I would recommend this product but only to someone who understood what was involved.

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Bought it to varnish a walking stick and did the job.

This is an oil based varnish which provides an excellent, waterproof finish especially in comparison to water based products now available. It is quick drying so risk of dust contamination is minimised.

After several coats and rubbing down with extra fine sand paper between last few coats the finish is stunning
