Shake Your Can!


This video was created to show you some alternative ways to shake your spray can. Especially if you’re having trouble shaking your can for the two full minutes Let’s be honest. There is a much glamour about shaking a spray can of varnish. There’s not very much to even say about shaking the spray can of varnish other than to say, It’s important enough that we made this video for you to drive home the message. Properly shaking varnish will have a more consistent spray quality with less spatter. It’s a fundamental prerequisite to using the GOLDEN archival varnish. You’re probably going to look pretty silly doing it, so what. In fact go with it have some fun, and you’ll be amazed. How fast 2 minutes will pass by. Why take the risk at this point in the painting process? The artwork is complete you probably spent a considerable amount of time painting, What’s another two minutes. Think about how amazed viewers of your news creation will be? Admiring the perfect layer of protective armor you so carefully applied to your work. Whether you try any of these methods for yourself it really doesn’t matter, but shaking the can for two full minutes does!

    @FlintRiverGal Have passed along the suggestion – but not making any promises! And we're glad you enjoy our sense of humor – we certainly had fun putting this together.

    Oh thank you! Let's shake again, like we did last summer …. But one question. If I'm recoating in 20 minutes, do I still need the whole shake, and nothing but the shake, again?

    Hi Jan! You can never shake it too much, although after 20 minutes you may not need to shake for the 2 full minutes. The product is very thin inside the can and it doesn't take very long to start separating. One thing also about the second time, if you didn't clear the nozzle out after the first spray, then spray a little bit before you go back into the painting. The little straw inside the can has some varnish in there and it isn't mixing no matter how much you shake!

    I take it that this video was done a few years ago.
