Ensures a cleaner drawing and makes it possible to safely apply one medium over another.

Hold can 20-25 cm from surface and spray in a side to side motion overspraying at each side, then turn work around and cross spray. Spray is best applied when can is held at a 45º angle to object.

This makes finishing off my artworks so easy by Maggi McDonald on 03 Jul 2018 11:23am

I love your aerosol spray varnishes - they make finishing off my artworks so easy and I love that I have the option of matte or satin. I teach workshops and have been showing my students how to use the varnish when they are finishing off their artworks at home. You can see the varnish in action on my Instagram: @maggimcdonaldart

Indispensable for my watercolor work by Cindy Lane (@cindylaneart) on 03 Jul 2018 11:06am

Ideal to use to fix layers of different media types, as well as a final protective coating. The matt spray is indispensable for my watercolor work.
