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 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from so glossy I purchased this after seeing a fellow artist use it on her mixed media/collage work. I mix the matte and gloss together to create my own sheen. It really enhances the depth of the work and creates a protective coating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Turned pink I had to contact the company after severyof my paintings had a pinkish hue after varnishing. Although I was told that that was an old problem they fixed, they still replaced it with new varnish and the problem seems to have been resolved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIQUITEX High Gloss Varnish is awesome! I bought this a month ago. It is really awesome. I apply with a sponge brush and usually within 3 coats or so, it is super glossy! Love this. It is easy to apply very quickly because it is very thin and easy to manipulate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! This is as close to a resin finish without using resin that you will find. This is my favorite finish for my abstract work.

I used chroma mural paint, along with glazing medium, to paint an 8'x8' interior mural on drywall. I would like to seal/protect it, and am wondering if liquitex matte varnish is what would be recommended. Also, how many ounces would this size require?

Asked by: Nval
Yes, the Liquitex matte varnish will work well. 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. http://www.liquitex.com/PB1ColMenu.aspx?pageid=304&LangType=1033&id=3412

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.
