Solvent based enamels and varnishes tend to be a little thicker and more viscous in the colder weather. This can make them difficult to apply and often results in a heavier film build being applied that can lead to unsightly runs as well as drying and recoat issues. Try standing the unopened can of paint in a container of warm water to warm up the contents before use to make it easier to apply.View all our tips
