Liquitex Matte Varnish

Liquitex Matte Varnish is a low viscosity fluid medium. Produces a low-sheen, non-glare surface that will intensify colours. 100 percent acrylic polymer varnish. Water-soluble when wet. Good resistance to chemicals and water when dry. One to two coats should be sufficient. Too many coats of Matte Varnish may cause clouding of colours. Dries to a non-tacky hard flexible surface that is resistant to dirt.

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
