Professional artists know that varnishing your finished work is an important step, and one that should not be neglected. Varnishes act as a protective, sacrificial layer over your finished artwork, protecting it from dirt and grease and other airborne pollutants, which would otherwise come into contact with the paint.
This varnish also contain a UV protective agent which improves lightfastness and protects from other UV damage such as fading or colour shifting in tone. This varnish is therefore particularly beneficial when coming to varnish non-lightfast media, such as digital print or giclée prints for example.
There are three Artists' Acrylic Varnishes available depending on your desired finish, Matt, Gloss and Satin. These varnishes dry to an even finish and can be intermixed to vary the result to achieve any sheen.
If you don't need to hide your skills in uncontrolled reflections, this matt varnish is the best solution I have tried. This varnish is suitable for both acrylic and oil paints - and combined paint with parts of both acrylic and oil paint. Please pay respect to drying time and temperature and you will be rewarded with a really nice matt coat without any reel loss or diming of your painting. Ideal for Trompe L'oil paintings.

easy to use goes a long way William O'Malley (Jarrow, United Kingdom) on 30 Dec 2016
Easy to use, more liquid than I expected which is a good thing. Doesn't leave brush marks and doesn't dull the look of the gold acrylic paint that I use either. Diane Bundock (Leicester, United Kingdom) on 5 Dec 2016
