CC MCCART-FROST asked 9 years ago

I will be painting my kitchen, I have a lovely interior paint to use on my kitchen cupboards. I was wondering, can I mix some type of varnish with the interior paint? I ask as I think this may help to keep it clean (easier to wipe down without wearing down the paint). Perhaps you could give me some advise in this matter. Thank you for your time and advice.

I don't recommend mixing any clear wood finish into paint. This type of finish is completely different from paint. A really good paint doesn't need any additional protection.

What you can do if you feel that the paint needs a little more protection; apply one extra thin coat. A little thicker film can't hurt.
