Acrylic Permanent Matte Varnish

by Liquitex

This very fluid medium produces a non-glare, low sheen surface that intensifies colors. Water soluble when wet, it becomes water resistant, flexible, archival and non-yellowing when dry. It also won’t crack from temperature and humidity changes.

Is this varnish suitable for oil paintings? I have use Liquitex Soluvar varnish in the past, but the cost is getting high.

- Asked by kenneth agnello on 10-Jan-13

The Acrylic Permanent Matte Varnish is not recommended for oil paintings. Liquitex does make an Acrylic Non-Permanent Matte Varnish that can be used on oil & acrylic paintings.

Liquitex quality, makes the glare disappear, protects, easy to apply and I've had no problem with any cloudy or milky spots.
Rated by: Kari C. in Valencia, CA
I really like this product. When applying, be careful not to let too much settle in the creases of texture or detail work because it will dry milky.
Rated by: Casandra G. in Richmond, TX
This is a wonderful product to protect art work. I use it a lot, but I wish I would have known it was a satin matte before I got it. I wanted less shine on the particular project I used it for. But, for the normal projects, it's great!
Rated by: Therin B. in Buena Vista, CO
I have used Liquitex brand for over 40 years, and have yet to find a product I don't like. This varnish really brings out the intensity of the colors. I prefer this matte varnish over the gloss, tho, as it does not show all the imperfections on the canvass and in the paint.
Rated by: Eddie R. in Union Beach, NJ
LIQUITEX Acrylic Matte Varnish is one of the best I have used. It's easy to apply and provides very nice coverage and enhances your art work.
