There it is!

Varnish, should. not be the subject/object

The ground IS the varnish(and it is not = varnish)

If varnish = varnish (that is substance of linseed oil or/and resins)

=> Varnish is really really dark, or filled with pigments/color 

Otherwise it is NOT varnish i.e it is the ground

Are you OK?

Perhaps it’s an analogy for life - the ground being the necessary components to remain alive, the varnish what makes life worthwhile!

 I think what he’s trying to say is that people refer to the colour as varnish, whereas the ground, sometimes oleoresinous, is not what people look at as varnish. Nonetheless, I am a little confused. 

Varnish is (in this case)  an oleoresinous coating. The ground can be made of varnish, or not, the “varnish” as in the layers above the ground, is still varnish, whether dark or not. 

At least it’s not called polish, which is a process, not a substance. 

Perhaps it is best if we use Koen Padding’s terminology 

primer - enhances the wood quality 

sealer- fills/bridges the pores

ground- provides an even foundation for subsequent layers

 “paint” - adds colour 

varnish - creates a protective layer.

It's easy to get attention

The story behind is that I have recently recieved some e-mails/pm:s because I have a lot of pictures on Google of my varnish making.

Many questions about, have you tried this and that, I haven't! Everything I do is on my site and in image albums

Short answer, don't say that it's ground if you put linseed oil or varnish directly on bare wood.

Isn't this a distinction without a purpose? Sort of like debating whether a violin maker is an artist or a craftsman? ;)
