Varnish is a translucent, hard, protective finish applied to the surface of wood or other materials. Varnish is usually a combination of a drying oil, resin and a thinner or solvent. Varnish finishes are often, although not always, glossy. Varnish has little or no color and is transparent, as opposed to paint, which contains pigment and is generally opaque, although certain kinds of paint are translucent if applied in a thin coat. Varnishes are flammable and should be disposed of as hazardous waste.
