Varnishes are the final coatings which act as a protective sacrificial layer over your finished artwork, protecting it from air-borne pollutants, dirt and grease, which would otherwise come into contact with the paint.
The new range of Artists' Acrylic varnishes, for professional artists, is the best range to use with Artists' Acrylic. These varnishes have a UV protective agent which improves lightfastness and protects from other UV damage such as fading or colour shifting in tone. These varnishes are therefore particularly beneficial when coming to varnish non-lightfast media, such as digital print or giclée prints for example.
These varnishes dry to an even finish, and can be intermixed to vary the result to achieve any sheen.
Our varnishes are equally suitable for use on artwork painted in oils and alkyds.
