Paint this varnish with a small brush onto those areas where you do not wish to have any paint (like painted eyes). The bright pink varnish will dry into a rubbery coat that can be removed like a skin, after you have applied the desired paint (like the overall wash for painted eye dolls). With tweezers, remove the varnish skin and then fire the paint as usual. Do not fire the varnish! Water-based. Can be washed off. If it thickens too much, it can be diluted with a little water.
