  • Low viscosity - very fluid.
  • Produces a matte finish
  • Does not drastically reduce colour depth as does Matte Medium.
  • 100% acrylic polymer varnish. Water-soluble when wet. Good chemical and water resistance when dry.
  • Dry to a non-tacky, hard, flexible surface that is resistant to retention of dirt.
  • Resist discolouring (non-yellowing, non-fogging) due to humidity, heat and ultraviolet light.
  • Depending upon substrate, allows moisture to pass through (breathable).
  • Will not crack as surface expands and contracts during temperature and humidity changes. Applicable for any acrylic painted surface (flexible and rigid) on canvas, paper, wood, stone, Plexiglas, etc.
  • Not for use over oil paint.
  • * Flexible, archival, non-yellowing and water-resistant when dry.
  • For interior and exterior use


  • Apply as a final varnish over dry acrylic paint.
  • Varnish surface and environment must be clean, dry and dust-free.
  • Acrylic paintings must be completely dried and cured for a minimum of 48-72 hours before varnishing.
  • The application may be done by brush or spray. Generally, a sprayed application will be thinner, smoother and more even. Rolling or sponging application is not recommended.
  • If more than 1 varnish coat is desired, apply 1-2 coats of Liquitex Gloss Varnish before applying a final coat of Liquitex Matte Varnish.
  • Caution: Acrylic paints and mediums become increasingly brittle in cold weather. Do not apply below 60 degrees.
  • Thinning: Do not thin, as it will weaken the varnish film and adhesion.
  • Removal: Not removable. Do not attempt to remove these varnishes with harsh solvents.
