Description

Seal your acrylic work with a transparent, matte acrylic layer which is breathable, permanent and protects against UV damage.

What it does
  • 100% acrylic polymer varnish adds a matte sheen, protects and resists dirt retention
  • Dries clear to a flexible, non-tacky, hard surface
  • Increases brightness and color saturation
  • Adjusts and unifies surface sheen
  • Improves surface durability - ideal when shipping or exhibiting
  • Protects colors from UV light damage
  • Resists discoloration - yellowing and fogging - caused by humidity, heat and UV
  • Depending on the substrate, it allows surface moisture to pass through and breathe
  • Allows for easy cleaning without fear of damaging the acrylic paint film
  • Has excellent levelling properties - will not hold brush marks
  • Semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry
  • Use on flexible or rigid supports
  • Ideal for complete coverage of heavy textures and vertical applications
  • Designed for interior and exterior use
How to use it
  • As this is permanent, do a patch test first
  • Before varnishing ensure paint surface is fully dry (72 hours-two weeks depending on thickness)
  • Ensure your space is well ventilated and dirt and dust-free
  • Place the artwork flat on a surface - always varnish horizontally
  • Stir gently before use
  • Do not thin with water
  • Use long, even strokes, covering the surface top to bottom while moving from one side to the other - don't go over bits you have missed, but leave to dry and then re-varnish area
  • While applying, look for surface bubbles by inspecting it from all angles and even them out immediately
  • Apply 1-2 thin coats, allowing at least three hours dry time between coats
  • If you require more than two layers, first use Gloss Varnish as a base layer and build to your desired thickness, then apply Satin Varnish as your top coat
How not to use it
  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • Don't apply with a roller or sponge brush
  • Don't apply in one thick coat, but several thin coats, to avoid brush marks, drips and cloudiness
  • Don't go back over areas you have already done, as this can cause clouding
  • Don't attempt to remove once applied
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media
