Seal your acrylic painting with a trasparent, matte acrylic layer, which is breathable, permanet and protects against UV.
This is the first time I've used Liquitex Matte Varnish after being a long time user of their Satin. I am now a total convert and won't go back to Satin. Love the matte, takes the sheen off the painting so that you don't get distracted at different angles. It's a gem to use, no brush marks and easily diluted with water. Love this!

I enjoy painting miniature figures, and have been searching for a good matt varnish. This brand can be applied directly without dilution through an airbrush, and does not leave a "frosting" like some other brands do. Excellent stuff. Chris (Wales) on 24 Jan 2017
I used this varnish on a couple of paintings made with acrylic paint pens. The recommendation on the bottle was to first apply a coating of gloss varnish before applying the matte varnish. I did this and it worked fine although to ensure no gloss showed through the matte I had to apply two layers of matte. The finish was excellent with no sheen at all. To be used with acrylic but I think I shall also try it over coloured pencil, why not? Glyn Rand (King's Lynn, United Kingdom) on 30 Jun 2016
