  • Flexible. Will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes.

  • Apply as a final varnish over dry acrylic or oil paint.
  • Good ventilation is required.
  • Application may be done by brush or spray. Generally a sprayed application will be thinner, smoother and more even. Rolling or sponging application is not recommended.
  • Painting surface and environment must be clean, dry and dust free. Allow oil paint to dry for 6 months to one year and acrylic paint for a minimum of 72 hours. Thickness of application will determine exact length of time.
  • If an oil painting is not dry before it is sealed with a varnish, the result may be long-term problems such as cracking or blistering. Varnish may become non-removable if applied over a painting that has not completely dried and cured.
  • Intermix Gloss and Matte Soluvar Varnish for a variety of sheens. Soluvar Matte Varnish contains matting agents that settle during storage. Gently stir with brush handle or dowel until completely re-dissolved. Do not shake.
  • Apply 1-2 layers of Soluvar Varnish. Let each layer dry 24 hours between coats.

  • Very easy to use and does the job! - Liquitex Soluvar Gloss Varnish 237ml

    I find that if you thin it down a little with spirits, it glides on easily without leaving brush marks and a little bit goes a long way. Venice Sedgwick (Accrington, United Kingdom) on 14 Nov 2015
