Question Make your own varnish !

In Romania my country,varnish for painting is quite expensive,i heard that you can make your own and get much cheaper,you buy materials in larger quantities and make at as you need it ! So any one knows how to make your own varnish for oil,tempera,guash and aquarelle (water colours) ? It will be a great help so in thi way il protect my paintings and make them maybe look better ! Thank you , Radu !

Music and art are my friends in the dark !

Hmmm...I guess not. I, too, would like to know this answer. I am always looking for "do it yourself" ways to make everything from scratch. I'm going to Google this and see what I can find. I'm sure it was made from scratch 100 years ago.
