Soluvar Gloss Varnish 400ml

Protect your acrylic and oil pieces with a transparent, gloss acrylic layer which can be removed to clean away surface dirt

Additive Size: 400ml
Key Features
  • Mineral spirit-based varnish adds a gloss sheen, protects and resists dirt retention
  • Increases brightness and color saturation and dries clear to a flexible, non-tacky, hard surface
  • Improves surface durability - ideal when shipping or exhibiting
  • Resists discoloration - yellowing and fogging - caused by humidity, heat and UV
  • Allows for easy cleaning without fear of damaging the acrylic paint film
How to Use
  • Before varnishing ensure paint surface is fully dry - 72 hours-two weeks for acrylics, depending on thickness, and 6-12 months for oils
  • Stir gently before use. Use a wide, flat soft-hair brush/pad/spray. Can be thinned with up to 25% true mineral spirits
  • Apply 1-2 coats of Gloss Medium as a permanent isolating barrier first and leave to dry for three days
  • Once completely dry, clean the surface with a lint-free rag dampened with mineral spirits
  • Apply 1-2 layers of Soluvar, leaving 24 hours between coats. Use long, even mists, covering the surface top to bottom while moving from one side to the other

MEET LIQUTEX PROFESSIONAL VARNISHES

SEAL THE DEAL.

Even though they're tough and durable, acrylics love varnish. It's not just about protection; acrylic varnish helps unify your surface finish and increase color saturation, while slowing UV ageing and keeping out dust/dirt. And if you're moving pieces around or transporting them, varnish gives you an extra damage control. Whether you work inside or outdoors, our 11 varnishes can be used on all types of artwork. Choose from different surface sheens, application methods (spray or brush-on) and permanent or removable options. Our iconic Soluvar range allows you to periodically lift the varnish and reapply a fresh coat, while Gloss Spray increases color saturation and is ideal for heavily textured or vertical applications.
