Gamblin Gamvar Varnish for Oils, Alkyds and Acrylics
Gamblin Gamvar Varnish for Oils, Alkyds and Acrylics is a brushable, archival quality varnish with UV Filters and a high light refractive index which make colors appear saturated. Available in Gloss, Satin and Matte.
Golden Polymer Varnish with UVLS
Golden Polymer Varnishes are a waterborne acrylic polymer varnish that dries to a protective, flexible, dust resistant surface over acrylic paint. Ultraviolet light stabilizers reduce damage caused by the sun. It can be removed with ammonia.
Golden MSA Varnish with UVLS
Golden MSA (Mineral Spirit Acrylic) Varnishes are a mineral spirit based acrylic varnish that forms a tougher, less permeable film than waterborne acrylic emulsion varnishes. Ultraviolet light stabilizers reduce damage caused by the sun. It reduces dirt penetration and surface marring, offering an extremely level film with less foam and fewer pinholes. For interior or exterior use.
Liquitex Soluvar Varnish
Liquitex Soluvar Varnish is a permanent, removable, final varnish for acrylic and oil paintings that protects painting surface and allows for removal of surface dirt, without damaging painting underneath.
Golden Aerosol MSA Archival Varnish
Golden Aerosol MSA Archival Varnish is a spray-on acrylic varnish for an archival, non-yellowing finish on all media including paintings, drawings, ink-jet prints, etc. The 100% acrylic polymer in mineral spirit vehicle goes on clear and stays clear, with a fan spray tip for precise application. The varnish’s UV light stabilizers inhibit light damage. While the varnish is permanent, with excellent dust and moisture resistance, it is removable for conservation purposes making it preferred by professional painters, conservators, museums and gallery customers.
Golden Gel Topcoat with UVLS
Thick acrylic gel mediums containing ultraviolet light filters and stabilizers (UVLS) to protect materials from fading and deterioration caused by exposure to UV radiation. These gel topcoats dry to a permanent, flexible, non-removable coating. Available in a gloss finish that dries with great clarity and a highly reflective surface, and a semi-gloss finish that dries to a translucent, wax-like finish.
Liquitex Acrylic Varnish
Used as a final finish for acrylic paintings or flexible painted surfaces. Liquitex acrylic varnishes are permanent and highly durable for superior protection, and have a fluid viscosity for easy application.  They are water-resistant, flexible and non-yellowing when dry. Gloss will provide the highest brilliance and clarity. Satin reduced sheen to a moderate amount between gloss and matte. Matte varnish will totally remove sheen and will also reduce clarity and brilliance slightly. Matte varnish can be mixed with a polymer medium to control surface sheen to any degree between matte and high gloss.
