• High quality clear varnish with a satin finish.
• Ideal choice when the dullness of mat and the glare of gloss is not required.

CLASS: Final Varnish

USAGE: Permanent satin protection for acrylic and oil paintings. Retains flexibility. A satin finish is the ideal choice when the dullness of matt or glare of gloss are not required. Use only on paintings which are completely dry (for oil paintings, this could be as much as 6-9 months). Will not yellow or become brittle with age. Varnish can be removed with turpentine to rework paintings. 

APPLICATION: Make sure surface is clean and oil paint is dry before applying. 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 45 degree angle to object.

Make finishing off my artworks so easy! by Maggi McDonald on 03 Jul 2018 11:22am

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
