Varnishing the Collage

I have been working on this collage since June. I used acrylics and oil to paint a frame around the whole piece, and embellished all the pictures with colors. Matt suggested I varnish the piece to give it a finished smooth look. I love how it turned out! Still not finished, but the piece is coming together better than I had imagined. The video above shows a small snippet of the process.
Here's a link to what the collage looked like when I started. I had not glued any of the photos down yet, so now it looks completely different. I love art that can change, and I enjoy the process, it's fun. Click here to see a post I wrote when I started the collage
