Seal your acrylic work with a transparent, satin acrylic layer which is breathable, permanent and protects against UV damage.

  • 100% acrylic polymer varnish adds a satin sheen, protects and resists dirt retention
  • Dries clear to a flexible, non-tacky, hard surface
  • Increases brightness and color saturation
  • Adjusts and unifies surface sheen
  • Improves surface durability - ideal when shipping or exhibiting
  • Protects colors from UV light damage
  • Resists discoloration - 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
  • 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 re-varnish area
  • While applying, look for surface bubbles and even them out immediately
  • Apply 1-2 thin coats, allowing at least three hours dry time between coats
  • If you require more than two layers, first use Gloss Varnish as a base layer and build to your desired thickness, then apply Satin Varnish as your top coat
  • 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
  • Do not 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
  • The Cincinnati, Ohio based company Permanent Pigments created Liquitex, the first water-based acrylic paint for artists in 1955.  The name Liquitex stands for "Liquid texture."  The Liquitex brand has been at the forefront of paint ever since, leading the industry with a number of firsts, Gloss and Matte Meduims, Hue colours in place of more expensive pigments, iridescent acrylics and many more.
