by Linda from Lewiston, Maine on August 02, 2016
Just wanted to let you know that I ordered 2 quarts from you guys...........the second quart definitely had issues...the varnish was really thick and I had to strain the heck out of it because there were particles in the varnish........ I ended up purchasing another quart here locally so I could finish my project
