Liquitex Liquitex Acrylic Mediums

Seal your acrylic work with Liquitex Matte Varnish: a transparent, matte acrylic layer which is breathable, permanent and protects against UV damage. 100% acrylic polymer varnish adds a matte sheen, protects and resists dirt retention. It dries clear to a flexible, non-tacky, hard surface and improves surface durability – ideal when shipping or exhibiting. It also adjusts and unifies surface sheen and increases brightness and color saturation. Liquitex High Gloss Varnish protects colors from UV light damage and resists discoloration (yellowing and fogging) caused by humidity, heat and UV. It has excellent levelling properties (will not hold brush marks). Depending on the substrate it allows surface moisture to pass through and breathe. It’s semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry.

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
– 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 out for surface bubbles and even them out immediately
– Apply 1-2 thin coats, allowing at least three hours dry time between coats

How not to use it:
– Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in surface bubbles and a foggy, hazy look when dry
– Don’t apply with a roller or sponge brush
– Don’t thin with water
– 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
