These gels can be used to add texture, create a clear barrier prior to working with paint or other materials, modify sheen, and provide a non-removable, water-based topcoat while also having the benefit of ultra-violet light filters and stabilizers for protection against fading.

In extensive testing, a 10 mil film of the Gel Topcoat has provided a similar degree of UV protection as GOLDEN MSA Varnishes and was able to preserve even fugitive dye and pigment-based inks after exposure to 1600 hours in a QUV Weatherometer, at 140° F, with ambient humidity normally below 50%. The accumulative UV exposure correlates roughly to the amount of UV one would expect from 100+ years of typical indoor gallery-lit conditions.

In addition, the Gel Topcoats will help lower overall water-sensitivity, limit air exposure, and provide increased durability. Overall, when used as a final layer, these gels should greatly increase the longevity and lightfastness of whatever media you are working with. However, if exhibiting your pieces without glass, we still strongly recommend applying one of our removable varnishes in addition to the Gel Topcoat to facilitate cleaning and future conservation.

GOLDEN UV Gel Gloss & Semi-Gloss Topcoats

Mix More Media!

Along with the Grounds, GOLDEN is also introducing two completely new Gel Topcoats with UVLS available in both Gloss and Semi-Gloss sheens. These gels can be used to add texture, create a clear barrier prior to working with paint or other materials, modify sheen, and provide a non-removable, water-based topcoat while also having the benefit of ultra-violet light filters and stabilizers for protection against fading. 

In extensive testing, a 10 mil film of the Gel Topcoat has provided a similar degree of UV protection as GOLDEN MSA Varnishes and was able to preserve even fugitive dye and pigment-based inks after exposure to 1600 hours in a QUV Weatherometer, at 140° F, with ambient humidity normally below 50%. The accumulative UV exposure correlates roughly to the amount of UV one would expect from 100+ years of typical indoor gallery-lit conditions. 

In addition, the Gel Topcoats will help lower overall water-sensitivity, limit air exposure, and provide increased durability. Overall, when used as a final layer, these gels should greatly increase the longevity and lightfastness of whatever media you are working with. However, if exhibiting your pieces without glass, we still strongly recommend applying one of our removable varnishes in addition to the Gel Topcoat to facilitate cleaning and future conservation. 

Lastly, while initially developed as a topcoat for prints, the new GOLDEN Gel Topcoats are fully compatible with other GOLDEN Gels, Mediums, and Acrylic Colors and therefore, can be used whenever their attributes are needed. For example, they can be used to create gel skins, image gel transfers, decoupage collage elements, extend paints or increase their transparency, create a wet layer to work into, or simply as a clear ground to work on top of. 

Just keep in mind that whenever mixing these gels with other materials, one is also lowering the degree of protection they can provide any underlying layers. In addition, maximum protection is only afforded when the gel sits up on top of the layer it needs to protect. Fugitive materials mixed into the gel will not fully benefit from its ability to provide  UV protection.

GOLDEN UV Gel Gloss & Semi-Gloss Topcoats is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff Golden products are the best for doing acrylic mixed media paintings. I don't have the separation on the paints like some other brands.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Golden Digital Gel Topcoat On first application of this product striaght from the gallon container I experienced a slight milky appearance and showing of brushstrokes when it dried so I thinned it with a third water and it dried clear and performed as I expected. I will hope it continues to perform as is a necessary component of my painting system.

It looks like your 32oz jars of gloss and semi-gloss top coat are labeled the same. I assume 83103 is the semi-gloss since I've ordered it before and that 83099 is the gloss?

Asked by: APASART
Yes, you are correct 83103 is Semi-gloss and 83099 is gloss. Thank you for bringing the label for 83103 to our attention. We have renamed 83103 so that Semi-Gloss is clearly labeled in the title for that product. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

I am looking for a varnish type topcoat to apply to the surface of an acrylic painting which will provide RV protection and not change the color or surface sheen of the acrylic paint.
