varnish skimming after opening can

2 posts in this topic

I'm using spar-varnish on my wooden canoes. After opening a can and pouring out what I'll need I replace the cover. A day later or so when I reopen the can I always find a layer of semi-dry varnish on the surface. I'm assuming that the air that gets in the can is reacting with the varnish.

Is there any way to eliminate or reduce this problem?
