Liquitex Acrylic Finishing Varnishes

Liquitex offers a variety of varnishes that have been specifically designed to achieve optimal clarity.

Varnishes are applied over dry paint films and have several purposes. The first and most important function is to protect the painting surface from the environment and protect the pigments from ultraviolet light. Secondly, varnishes can be used to change or unify a painting's surface sheen. Liquitex varnishes come in several different sheens, which can all be intermixed for a customized sheen. Our varnishes are either permanent or removable and can be applied to both flexible and rigid supports.

Gloss Varnish - This water resistant varnish delivers permanent, high durable protection that is flexible and no-yellowing when dry. A 100% acrylic polymer varnish that is water soluble and can be thinned.

High Gloss Varnish - This permanent water-based varnish produces a finish that is high gloss, clear, sandable and non-tacky. It increases depth and color intensity; AP non-toxic.

Matte Varnish - Enhances color while adding a non-glare, low sheen finish.

Satin Varnish - Apply over dry paint to protect surface and add a sheen finish. A non-yellowing medium with excellent leveling properties. Translucent when wet, dries clear.

Soluvar Varnishes - Both are ideal for acrylic and oil colors. These mediums are solvent based, durable and non-yellowing. Maybe removed with mineral spirits or turpentine. One reveals a gloss finish, the other a matte.

Liquitex Acrylic Finishing Varnishes is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I love using this varnish. I use alot of water with my acrylic paintings and the varnish really brings out the color and adds depth to the final piece. My paintings were looking very dry and dull. I've tried other varnishes but Liquitex seems to do very well. Easy to use, I can use one coat or several coats, and can paint over it if needed. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Matte Varnish This is my first time using acrylic varnish so I don't have anything else to compare it to, but I decided to go with Liquitex since I use their gesso and it's great. I bought this varnish to protect a painting I finished recently. It is thin and flows very well. I put two coats of varnish on my painting after waiting for 3 hours in between layers. I appreciate that it doesn't have a strong smell since I have a very sensitive nose. This varnish works well for my needs and I would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It isn't finished until you put a finish on your work. Two to three thin coats of liquitex gloss finishing varnish brings out color and evens out the luster of acrylic paint. It also protects the paint from dirt and can be cleaned with a lightly damp cloth. Liquitex varnish is not cheap, but it is thin and goes on smooth. The gallon container is the best value and will allow you to put an excellent finish on many, many paintings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best High Gloss I Have Found I currently use the high gloss on all of my paintings. It brings out and enriches the colors and produces a very nice surface which people really respond to. A little difficult to work with, as it dries very fast. Bubbles are also an issue, so dust control is very important.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a little goes a long way Use several thin coats and the colors pop, not as glossy as I thought it would be.

Can gloss liquitex varnish be used over an outdoor mural painted with chroma mural paint? Will it protect the mural from harsh elements such as rain and snow?

Asked by: Art Nixon
We would recommend that you use Liquitex Soluvar gloss varnish for this outdoor mural project. As a general rule of thumb 1 gallon of Liquitex Varnish (or 128 ounces) will cover approximately 400 square feet. Many factors can change this number a bit including how thick you apply the coats and the surface you are painting. This rule also applies to other Liquitex products with a similar viscosity such as Liquitex Professional Soft Body Acrylic Paint.Soluvar Varnishes - Both are ideal for acrylic and oil colors. Soluvar varnish is solvent based, durable and non-yellowing. The varnish may be removed with mineral spirits or turpentine.

What brush would you recommend to use with the gloss?

Asked by: DottieK
I used an extra fine real hair brush, about 1" wide...it worked fine.  If it's too glossy, you can always go over it a matt varnish.
