What it does

  • 100% acrylic polymer varnish adds a high gloss sheen, protects and resists dirt retention
  • Dries clear to a flexible, non-tacky, hard surface
  • Increases brightness and colour saturation
  • Adjusts and unifies surface sheen
  • Improves surface durability - ideal when shipping or exhibiting
  • Protects colours from UV light damage
  • Resists discolouration - yellowing and fogging - caused by humidity, heat and UV
  • Depending on the substrate it allows surface moisture to pass through and breathe
  • Allows for easy cleaning without fear of damaging the acrylic paint film
  • Has excellent levelling properties - will not hold brush marks
  • Semi-opaque when wet, transparent when dry
  • Use on flexible or rigid supports
  • Designed for interior and exterior use

How to use it

  • As this is permanent, do a patch test first
  • Before varnishing ensure the paint surface is fully dry (72 hours-two weeks depending on thickness)
  • Ensure your space is well ventilated and dirt and dust-free
  • Place the artwork flat on a surface - always varnish horizontally
  • Stir gently before use
  • Use long, even strokes, covering the surface top to bottom while moving from one side to the other - don't go over bits you have missed but leave to dry and then the re-varnish the area
  • While applying, look out for surface bubbles and even them out immediately
  • Apply up to three thin coats, allowing at least three hours of dry time between coats

How not to use it

  • Do not shake or vigorously over-brush as this can result in surface bubbles and a foggy, hazy look when dry
  • Don't apply with a roller or sponge brush
  • Don't thin with water
  • Don't apply in one thick coat, but several thin coats, to avoid brush marks, drips and cloudiness
  • Don't go back over areas you have already done, as this can cause clouding
  • Don't attempt to remove once applied
  • Do not use with any non-acrylic media

Great product

I have been using this for two years now and it’s been amazing to see the finish product once applied 3 times on my terracotta pots.

Great Product

I used this Liquitex High Gloss varnish on my tiles. Which were decorated with alcohol inks. Alcohol were sealed first with White Knight Acrylic Gloss varnish.
I brushed on the Liquitex with a soft brush in very thin coats. Thick coats leave lines.
It is easy to work with and leaves a beautiful gloss finish (3 coats)
I can recommend this product.
