    De lempicka oil paintings always in vogue

     

    "It can be argued that the Art Deco spirit expressed itself more naturally through portraiture than through any other kind of painting. The quintessential Art Deco portraitist is undoubtedly Tamara de Lempicka. Fashionable society of the 1920s and 30s is now perceived very largely through her eyes" -- Edward Lucie-Smith Tamara de Lempicka is considered the most famous painter of the art deco period. De Lempicka was born in Poland and moved to Russia where she lived until the Russian Revolution. She fled to Paris. There she enrolled at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere and studied art privately. De Lempicka had a natural talent; by 1923 she was showing her work at major salons. She developed a distinctive and bold style, referred to as “soft cubism”, but is most known as Art Deco – a cool modern movement of the roaring 20’s. For her first major show, in Milan in 1925, she painted 28 works. She was soon the most fashionable portrait painter of her generation, painting duchesses and dukes. She acquired a patron, the Baron Raoul Kuffner, who bought dozens of her paintings, and commissioned her to paint his mistress. De Lempicka finished the portrait, and then took the mistress’ place in the Baron’s life. In the summer of 1939 she and the Baron went on vacation in the United States and eventually relocated to New York; she continued to paint in her trademark style – Art Deco though she expanded her subject matter, painting Still Lifes, and even some Abstracts. Eventually she adopted a new style, using palette knife instead of brushes. Her heart was broken as her new style was not well received. She then decided to never show her work again, and stopped painting altogether. Tamara de Lempicka died in her sleep in Mexico, 1980. She lived a long and eventful life. Before she died a new generation discovered her art and greeted it with enthusiasm. At the time of her death, her early Art Deco paintings were being shown and purchased once again. A play about her life was produced in Los Angeles. Many movie stars started collecting her works including Jack Nicholson and Madonna. Madonna has also immortalized De Lempicka in her music videos for “Express Yourself” and “Vogue”.

         
    Deal or no deal great television

     

    Game show lovers gather around the television once a week for NBC's runaway hit show Deal or No Deal. This extremely popular and exciting hour long show is hosted by none other than Howie Mandel, the loveable stand up comedian who offers average citizens the chance to strike it rich. Mandel's likeable nature and comical banter combined with the enthusiasm shown by contestants would make for good TV in itself. The real hook of the show though is the way the tension builds as deals are cut with the mysterious banker up in the shadows. The game of Deal or No Deal does require some strategy, but ultimately it comes down to luck. The game involves trying to choose the case which contains 1 million dollars out of 26 cases which hold various dollar amounts. The cases are held and opened by 26 of the loveliest ladies on television. After selecting the case and placing it on the contestant’s table, then comes the process of eliminating the remaining cases and negotiating with the banker in hopes of walking away with the biggest pot possible. When it is time to talk to the banker, Mandel picks up the phone and calls a shadowy figure in a glass booth. The banker will offer the contestant a dollar amount he can walk away with if he stops game play at the end of the call. The dollar amount offered depends on how many high dollar cases have been flushed out before the call. These calls create tension among the audience as everyone waits to see what choice the contestant makes. Some choices are good ones and earn money for the contestant and everyone is happy. Other times, the contestant will make the wrong choice and will walk away with a pot much smaller than he could have. Deal or No Deal takes the audience and TV viewers through the gauntlet of emotions: anticipation, indecision, the thrill of the win, and the disappointment of defeat. NBC has created magic with their wildly popular game show Deal or No Deal. Interestingly, Deal or No Deal is a popular television game show in many other countries as well, each with their own version of the game. The game is suspenseful and the formula the show follows allows for the audience to bond right away with the contestant. The audience becomes drawn in and cheers and experiences anxious moments right along with the player. While winning the top prize does not happen very often, contestants can still walk away with a nice lump sum of cash and that is the ultimate goal of Deal or No Deal, and that is why millions of viewers turn in each week.

         
    Deal or no deal one of tv s most popular game shows

     

    When thinking of the greatest TV game shows of all time, classics such as The Price is Right and Let's Make a Deal instantly come to mind. Game shows of recent years came and went without too much of an impact until the past few years when Deal or No Deal came on the scene. Its success is probably due to a mixture of the excitement of the game itself with the charming personality of the host Howie Mandel. Mandel has toned down his stand up comic antics and acquired a more serious demeanor for the show. But his loveable personality still shines through. The set of Deal or No Deal also adds to the allure with the audience and mysterious banker cast in shadows. Twenty six beautiful women hold cases filled with unknown amounts of money. The contestants appear to be carefully selected for their likeability quotient so the audience warms up to them right from the start. Of course, all the above wouldn't be worth much if the game were not so fascinating. Each show offers someone the chance at becoming an instant millionaire. But it doesn't come easily. The contestant needs to open each of the cases one by one to see where the large sums of money are. At certain times, the game play stops and Mandel phones in to the bank which makes a cash offer to the contestant to stop playing and walk away from the game. The contestant replies to the offer by answering, "Deal," or "No deal." The show is a roller coaster ride of emotions for the contestant and the viewers. After all, the big prize is one million dollars and of course everyone wants to win it. Not many people do actually win the one million dollar prize however. Many have won prizes in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars, and of course, those prizes are certainly nothing to complain about. The hook of the game show is the offer from the bank. When Mandel makes a call to the mysterious banker, everyone anxiously awaits his offer. The banker is housed behind glass and the audience can see him sitting in the shadows talking on the telephone to Mandel. Once the contestant is told the offer, he has to choose between accepting a guaranteed amount of cash to walk off the show or rejecting the offer and take the chance of winning a bigger pot in the end. People will often turn down large sums of money just to play on and have the chance of winning the big amounts over $100,000 and up to $1,000,000. This adds to the drama, suspense, and excitement of Deal or No Deal and is what keeps millions of viewers glued to the TV screen when it comes on.

         
    Deal or no deal

     

    Deal or No Deal seems to be about the hottest show on television right now. People that tire of soap operas and reality shows at least have a good alternative to watch. Deal or No Deal can get addicting. There is just something about watching the contestants make decisions about huge sums of money that viewers offer advice from the sidelines and feel the joy and disappointment right along with the players. The top prize in the UK version of Deal or No Deal is Ј250,000 and viewers tune in to see ordinary people open the cases and make decisions on the banker's offers in the chance one of them will walk off the show with a huge bundle of cash. One recent episode of Deal or No Deal came down to a contestant being left with the chance of winning either Ј100,000 or Ј1000, and an offer from the bank of Ј35,000. Which would you choose in the same situation? A guaranteed Ј35,000 or a 50/50 chance of winning Ј100,000? Predicaments like this are what glues viewers to this fascinating game show. In this particular instance, the contestant answered, "No deal" to Noel Edmonds and unfortunately left the game with a mere Ј1000 in winnings. But such are the fortunes of some players of Deal or No Deal. Others of course have much better luck and walk away with loads of cash. A contestant has more than one opportunity to deal with the bank during a game and the offer is constantly changing based upon the amount of money left in play that could possibly be won. It is interesting to watch how different people react when faced with the choice of accepting sure cash over the possibility of a larger pot. There is some degree of skill required in determining if the bank has made a good offer, but when it comes to opening cases, it all comes down to pure luck. That may help to explain the mass appeal and wild success of the show; the blending of pure luck with skillful decision making. Deal or No Deal is shown in many countries around the globe. In the UK, Deal or No Deal comes on television at half past four in the afternoon and has Noel Edmonds as a host. The time slot is probably not the best as a lot of people are working or on the way home from work at that hour. Still, if you are able to catch the show at that time, you should watch it. But look out, you might get hooked on it like millions of other viewers around the globe and before long you will be shouting, “Deal” or “No Deal” from the sidelines.

         
    Deal or no deal a mix of luck and skill

     

    Deal or No Deal is a television game show that has turned the history of game shows on end. The show is aired in many different countries worldwide and the loyal fans count into the millions. There are many different versions of the game since each country pretty well has its own version hosted by a local celebrity. Sometimes the rules vary a little from country to country, but basically they all play out the same way. One thing is for sure, in just about every country the game is viewed in, Deal or No Deal has quickly risen to the top of the charts for popular game shows. What makes Deal or No Deal so popular? Deal or No Deal has a unique mix of pure luck combined with the skill of determining a good bank offer and the talent for calculating the odds of winning a big jackpot. It appears that many players get swept up in the excitement of playing and winning big money; and therefore make costly mistakes when responding to the banker. Sometimes it is a good idea to go for the big money and at other times, the player is much better off by accepting a bank offer. To walk away with the maximum amount of money possible requires one to be level headed and constantly calculating the odds. The version of Deal or No Deal that is aired in the United States starts a new player off with 26 briefcases. At the beginning of the game, the player selects the first briefcase and keeps it at his side. If the player declines all bank offers, this will be the case the contestant will open last to see what he has won. So you can see that the chances for winning a huge lump sum from Deal or No Deal depends upon picking the correct case right from the start. That is why dealing with the bank becomes so important. The player may take home less than he would have otherwise, but if done correctly, he can still go home with a bundle. Each offer from the banker must be analyzed against the number of briefcases left unopened and the number of large sums as of yet undiscovered. Deal or no deal is a game of both luck and skill. Picking which briefcase to open is a matter of luck, but determining if the banker’s offer is a good one requires some degree of skill if the contestant is to have the best chance of winning a big payout in Deal or No Deal. Deal or No Deal is a fun and exciting game to watch. We root for each contestant to win as much as they can and if luck is on their side along with their ability to calculate odds and take risks, then they have a good chance of winning it big.

         
    Deal or no deal howie mandel s game show success

     

    Are you tired of Reality TV shows, soap operas, and reruns? Then why not try something different and watch a game show? If you think game shows are silly or boring, then you haven't seen Deal or No Deal. Deal or No Deal is quickly becoming one of the most popular television game shows of all time. It is viewed by millions of people in countries all around the world. Many of the different countries have their own version of Deal or No Deal. In America, the show airs on NBC and is hosted by Howie Mandel. Mandel also hosts the English version of Deal or No Deal in Canada. You may remember Mandel as a wild stand up comic, or as an intern on St. Elsewhere. For Deal or No Deal, Mandel has adopted a more serious but personable demeanor. He has hosted the show since it debuted in December 2005 and his popularity has risen right along with the game show. An interesting tidbit about Howie Mandel is that he has a fear of germs and does not shake hands with anyone, including the contestants on Deal or No Deal. He will use other gestures such as slaps on the back or shoulder, but stops short of shaking hands unless he has gloves on. It does not affect the show at all. In fact Mandel's charming personality has been at least part of the reason for the shows amazing success. Of course, the game show also owes a great deal of its success to the fact that it is truly a fascinating and suspenseful game to watch and be a part of. It shows that the producers take great care in screening the potential candidates so that the ones with the best personalities make it to the show. This serves to make the show more exciting to watch and it also helps the audience to have an almost instant rapport with each contestants. The game itself is full of twists and turns and is always full of surprises. Each game is different based on the order the suitcases are opened, so one doesn’t know what to expect from the game or the contestants. Different contestants react in different ways. Some are conservative and take very few if any risks. Some others will decline to accept a nice size offer from the bank just on a wild chance they can win the million dollars. In all, the rapid success and loyal following Deal or No Deal has garnered seems to be well deserved. It is a fascinating game to watch and the suspense is skillfully manipulated by Mandel, particularly when he uses the telephone to call the mysterious banker who is portrayed as a shadowy figure behind glass walls.

    Decorate with a hanging wall tapestry

     

    A hanging wall tapestry can be a joy not only for the owner but for all those who happen to visit and look upon it. This style of decoration is truly ancient, going back centuries to a time when a hanging wall tapestry was more than just something to look at. The hanging wall tapestry is an art form. Hanging wall tapestry has also been used as a record for historical events, for recording births and deaths of not only the rich and famous but also the poor. It has been used for religious purposes, and for cultural purposes. For some reason, people all over the world for as long as we can imagine have used this craft to share their thoughts, feelings, lives, and other important information with those who look upon the work. In some cases, as with the Celtics, the form consisted of intricate woven designs and shapes that depict either nature or the gods. In other cases, the form was much more intricate and elaborate. In all cases, the craftsperson had to devote many hours of work in order to finish the vision that he or she first started with. Mythology has often played a big part in the form. The ancient Chinese were fond of creating works that honored the dragon. The dragon was also popular with the ancient Celtic peoples. For both cultures, the dragon was a symbol of wisdom, vision, and knowledge. It was also considered a guardian against evil invaders. On the religious front, the Celtic cross has been a favorite of many for ages. This beautiful rendition of a cross is often crafted in subdued colors to reflect the spirit of the Christian to all nations. It is no wonder it is still one of the most sought after pieces in that it brings a sense of peace to those who own and display one. The peoples of India have been perfecting their skills at this craft for hundreds of years and their offerings are endlessly stunning. Other works of art will often portray various animals, often from the jungles. A popular animal is the elephant, another is the tiger. Both of these, animals hold special meaning to the people who craft the work. In addition to the animal motif, these works often have brilliant colors and very intricate designs associated with them. In some patterns, the viewer may feel as if he or she is being drawn into a maze work. They are truly amazing works of art. For those who prefer something less formal, there are also works that are fashioned through the old tie dye method. This was a very popular way of dying material in the 1960’s in America, and it is making a comeback. One thing about a tie dye work is that it will be unique. No two pieces ever come out the same, which is one of its main attractions for many people. The freedom to use just about any color combination imaginable is also a major factor.

    Decorate your dollhouse exterior to make an enormous impact

     

    With so much attention given to the interior decoration of your dollhouse, it can be easy to overlook what a difference some exterior design and decorating can make. By spending some time and a few dollars on the exterior aesthetics of your dollhouse, you can give the scene a feeling of completion, instead of a house that is just well decorated on the inside. The opportunities for enhancing your dollhouse's exterior design are nearly limitless. Think of how you'd want to spruce up your own home's exterior and try to add some landscaping effects to your dollhouse's outdoor space. Creating a small garden can be very nice, and you can add some miniature wicker furniture. You'll also have an excuse to expand your crafting abilities to learn new design techniques or how to build just the right piece of furniture. Some miniature collectors like to create outdoor spaces that look like they are being lived in. An outdoor space that is tastefully scattered with children’s lawn games and swing sets give a sense of reality to your miniature display. If you can add some pets to the scene then it may make it seem even more like a place where a typical family would spend a summer afternoon. Trying to replicate realism is important to a dollhouse. There are many additions you can make that add to the look of a true home. Features such as a mailbox, trees, or a driveway aren't ones you'd think to add at first glance, but once you do, you'll wonder how your dollhouse ever looked complete without them. Attention to small outdoor details and usual features we find around our own homes makes a big difference in your display. Many miniature collectors enjoy changing the look of their dollhouse exterior each season. Just as you'd decorate for the holidays, you can string your dollhouse with miniature lights. If it's time for summer barbecues, adding a tiny grill to your dollhouse patio adds more realism. When your dollhouse is set for winter seasons and it's full-blown spring outside, your scene may look out of place. However you choose to utilize your creative abilities on the exterior of your dollhouse, keep in mind that there isn’t really a right or wrong way to do it. As long as you make sure the exterior scale matches the interior scale you can decorate the exterior however you want without ruining the integrity of the display.

         
    Decorating for special occasions

     

    Decorating your home and office for special occasions can sure warm up your holiday celebration environment, not to mention add fun to your holiday activities. But in order to avoid adding to much stress to your holiday event, you need to decorate at your own pace and don’t go overboard, putting a lot of time and effort into this, so that you can reap the most rewards – and not stress. To help, here are some suggestions for your own decorating activities. Take each one and make it unique to your own home or business and festive environment. For example, you might take the mantle display and add some coordinating fall-colored throw pillows or blankets to your couch plus light a pumpkin scented candle and your whole family room will have that special thankful (Thanksgiving) feel to it. Suggestions to customize: Mantle Display The mantle over your fire place is the perfect place to decorate. For a simple display, arrange some pumpkins or decorative ornaments on the mantle along with a few candles. A fall or winter garland or wreath is also a nice touch above the mantle. Seasonal Flower Arrangement Stop by your local florist for some flowers in yellow or orange or order some from an online gift shop. Arrange them in a vase along with some greenery. Yard Display Decorate the front yard with a wooden figure or sign. For a little color, plant a few mums, either in the ground, or in pots and planters. Special Gift Basket or Wreath Purchase or make a simple grapevine wreath and / or gift basket and decorate it with seasonal leaves and miniature fruits or plants. Add a nice bow and place the basket on a center table and hang the wreath on the front door. A festive wreath is a great way to welcome your guests in. And a gift basket is a nice way to invite guests to enjoy a quick snack of fruits, crackers and candies. Fruits & Veggies You can make a beautiful arrangement by setting out some fresh fruit and miniature pumpkins and ears of corn. Look for yellow and purple varieties of corn for an authentic fall feel. Scatter them across your dining table, or arrange them in a bowl for a nice centerpiece. Display Kids Artwork Not only will your home be beautifully decorated, but you’ll be building your children’s self-esteem at the same time. Buy a few inexpensive frames and set them out or hang them on the wall. This is of course also a great way to display your child’s artwork year round. Traditional Themes There are quite a few ways to incorporate traditional themes like the first Thanksgiving in your decorations. Create a small scale version of this special occasion by setting out a few figurines of pilgrims and Native Americansplete the scene with a small table, some turkeys and miniature trees to show that the first Thanksgiving took place outside. Check books from your local library for more ideas. And add some festivity to your home and business environment. Make your own or visit fun shops online. Decorating can be as simple as that!

         
    Decorating picture frames and boxes for decoupage

     

    You need to take proper care when cutting a very detailed design, like a leaf edge. Use your left hand to turn the paper as required, and cut the details of the design using your scissors. When cutting designs like grass or fur, be innovative enough to add your own long curves if possible. In case you do not find some patterns good enough for your project like a blank portion in the picture or some straight edges, then you can cut away them from your image. Once the design is ready to be pasted cut the bridges. In case the design is too delicate, you will need to put gum on the object and then paste the cut design. Use a moist sponge to clean any extra glue. Keep the sponge pieces handy when working with this technique. After wiping put your sponge piece in water. Because once the glue on it gets dried up, it would deface the sponge. Clean these sponge pieces properly with water and save for future use in your next project. Fold and cut technique can give marvelous effects to your design. You can take colored pages from magazines and books and create symmetrical and beautiful designs using this technique. These designs can also be photocopied to make some layered/repeat design. To decorate picture frames and sides of boxes, you can use cut corner patterns and other interesting shapes. You can cut coiled borders and repeat designs. For this you can cut it like a string or else outline your pattern on the paper and copy and cut it as many number of times as you require. Although it would not result in exact copies, but would be appreciably same. Before pasting them, you will need to paint the white edges in your image. You can use a permanent marker or acrylic paint to color this. These colors actually blend nicely with your image. Maximum time's sepia or black would solve your purpose but in a few cases you may need to go in for other hues too. If required the images can be pasted one on another. Images reaching over the edges give a beautiful effect in a box. You can paste both the lid and the box with the whole image. Canadian artist Christopher Freville often uses Victorian photos for pasting on the side of a box. Once the paste dries up simply make a cut at the joint of the lid and the box. This way the pattern would exactly correlate to each other. You can use a blue TAC to place your cut outs at as desired and then sketch your boundaries using a pencil or chalk. This way you would know which cut out should be glued where. Blue TAC can also be used to trace the place to paste the cut out. And obviously this needs to be done gluing every cut out piece one by one. Only if your base surface has extremely good color and luster that you will not need to cover it thoroughly but otherwise you got to cut good number of prints from magazines or gift wraps so that they sufficient to cover the whole object. While cutting you should keep in mind that you have kept enough space to let the prints overlap slightly. Before gluing experiment with different lay outs in which you can place your picture. Once you get a satisfactory look, paste it using your fingers and slightly press the print from the center towards its edges, thus avoiding any air bubbles or wrinkles.

    Decoupage is an art based on good old scissors

     

    In the decoupage process, after applying the gold/silver leaf, leave it for 24 hours before sealing. Many books recommend that you shellac after gilding. If you don't have shellac on hand, you may choose to opt for your sealer. Decoupage is an art which is mainly done using scissors, but experts use other different stuff to enhance their work. Like using paper punches, quilling strips or stickers. But note that you do not use all these ideas in any competition because usually there are certain rules in any competition which would not allow you too use other forms of art in your decoupage project. But definitely when it comes to gifts and sales items, anything is permissible that you want to use. Stickers can also be used to decoupage your object. But since they are thick, you will need to apply loads of varnish on them to make your work smooth. They can ideally be used on coasters and tablemats. Even quilling strips can be used in this craft. Quilling strips are available in many colors, even in metallic gold and silver colors. These are easily available with the traders who are into supplying card making materials. Its fun to use them especially the metallic ones and they truly look wonderful when used for framing pictures in boxes or making borders around the edges. The paper must not have any dust flakes or grit on it. If required paint the paper and leave it for 24 hours to get dry before start. Ensure that it has a slight friction like kind of a bit sanded so that the gum sticks to it properly. It's recommended not to decoupage any object before you prepare that object perfectly. First thing required is it should be dry. Then you may need to clean any dirt on it, or you may need to paint it or seal it. The surface may also require a bit of sanding. You can also create 3D effect decoupage. For this you will first need to cut many copies of the same picture and then with the help of double sided adhesive foam strips, pads, glue dots or silicone glue create different layering thus giving a 3D effect. Note that the layers are not same in size but they get smaller as you move on. If you are a new comer, you would be advised to use foam pads and glue dots since these are easier to use but to give your work a real touch you must use silicone glue. In case you are a new comer, to assemble your artwork nicely and at the same time easily, you must print each layer of your pattern separately with only the detail needed for some particular layer. Newcomers should seek lessons from craft teachers such as Papa Christopher Freville, Idaho and Julie-Ann Sharman, British Columbia. When you decoupage an object, first of all, the base surface of the project is covered with the largest layer and then you move on with each of the successive layers to finally finish up the object. Note that the first layer is the largest and as you move on the layer's size diminishes. Beginners are advised to number each of their layers before actually assembling them in to the project. Creating decoupage of objects from similar pictures can also be done but its a bit tricky task because for this you got to know which portions of the image would be removed from each successive layer. Use some shaping tool or your finger to give the finished product some real natural look. Like you can curl up the petals of the flower to make it appear more round and real. To give the project a glossy effect, apply a coat of varnish on it. This may not be because since some papers are naturally lustrous.

         
    Decoupage tools and equipment

     

    One of the advantages of decoupage is that it requires very little equipment, and it’s likely that you already possess the tools that you need to get started. However, there are items that can be helpful in your decoupage, if not strictly necessary. These will vary according to the exact work you plan to do. Let’s first look at the tools you can’t manage without. Scissors It’s best to have a pair of scissors put aside solely for decoupage. Certain things can gradually blunt scissors, and you want to keep yours as sharp and clean as possible. Embroidery scissors, which come to a very sharp point, are good for this sort of work. You can also buy curved scissors, which can be helpful in cutting out awkward shapes. You can keep your scissors sharp by cutting fine sandpaper. Glue White PVA glue makes an excellent medium, although you may want to dilute it a little with water before using it. This will give you a similar product to specially made decoupage medium. There are many brands of glues available, some made specifically for decoupage. They will have instructions for use on the bottle. For simple projects, you can mix two parts clear drying craft glue with one part water. Some glues may need to be diluted further. Wallpaper paste can be used for large areas. Decoupage mediums or glues may be used full strength, except on glass where they should be diluted. Decoupage glue has a slower drying time, which is useful if you’re inexperienced as it allows you to reposition items. There are a number of recipes available for making your own glue if you find it difficult to obtain decoupage glue. Glaze Mix together three parts PVA glue with one part water. Add more water if necessary. Add two tablespoons of varnish, for shine. Put into a screw top container. Glue ј cup of sugar ј cup of flour Ѕ teaspoon of powdered alum 1ѕ cups of water ј teaspoon of oil of cinnamon Mix the sugar, flour, and alum in a medium sized saucepan. Gradually add the one cup of water, stirring vigorously to break up any lumps. Boil until clear and smooth. Stir constantly. Remove from heat and add the remaining water and oil, stirring until thoroughly mixed. Put into a screw top container. Slow Drying Glue Add one part glycerin to four parts glue. Varnish The type of varnish you choose will depend on the use to which the item is to be put and how you want it to look. You can use a water-based varnish, which won't yellow, or oil based varnish to give a yellow tint for an aged look. Lacquer, which comes in spray-on cans, is easy to use for large objects. Water based varnish is less likely to run and dries quickly. It’s also heat resistant to a point and scuff resistant. Although it has a milky appearance, it dries clear. This varnish works well on wood and glass because it is thin and easy to apply. It’s available in gloss, matt and satin. You need to apply it smoothly and evenly and wash your brushes and applicators in soapy water immediately after use. As it dries clear, it works well on bright colors. Water based varnish is the best to use if you’re working in a small space owing to the fumes produced by oil based varnish. Remember that the final coat defines the finish so is you decide that you’d rather have a matte than gloss finish; use a matte varnish for your final coat. Cotton Swabs These are used to spread the glue around. They are a very inexpensive alternative to paint brushes. Damp Rag This will help you to wipe up any excess glue that leaks out, as you don't want the residue to lie on top.
