Glossy Finish on Straw and Sinamay ?

Hello,I'm curious to know if anyone has been able to get a high gloss finish on hemp straw braid or sinamay.I have tried several makes of spray gloss varnish, and, disappointingly they have all resulted in more of a matte finish.I thought about trying yacht varnish but my paint brush skills leave a lot to be desired.Any thoughts or suggestions would be most helpful.Thanks in advance,ShonaSee More
