Matisse MM33 UV* Conservation Varnish produces a hard, non-yellowing, UV protected coating similar in appearance to Damar varnish. it is a final clear gloss varnish (similar to Matisse MM14 Gloss Varnish), quick drying, designed to give your painting that final "glow", but with the added benefit of UV protection. This makes it ideal for varnishing items that will be exposed to daylight or for extending the light fastness of items that are not traditionally so e.g. printed images from your home printer. MM33 UV Conservation Varnish will slow the rate of fading of printed material as it reduces UV light spectrum by more than 99%.
Easily dissolved with mineral turpentine, this varnish can be removed without any impact if applied over Matisse Acrylic paints. If used over other brands of acrylic paint a patch test in an inconspicuous area is recommended.
Available in 250ml and 500ml sizes.
*The term UV refers to Ultra Violet radiation present in artificial and natural sources such as sunlight and often manifests itself as discoloration or fading, cracking, and, sometimes, total product disintegration if cracking has proceeded sufficiently.
