MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish is a water-based acrylic varnish containing matting agents to reduce sheen, resulting in a satin finish which is not too glossy but still has a lively look about it without being matt. MM28 Polymer Satin Varnish will help to bring out the intense, vibrant colours of the Matisse Professional Artist Acrylics range. Use as a final varnish over a dried, well-cured acrylic painting where a satin or semigloss sheen is required (and the use of MM29 Final Varnish Satin Finish (Turps-based) is not appropriate).
This varnish may be used to matt off a work for photography or wherever a subdued satin finish is required. It is most suitable as a protective coating particularly over large works exposed to damage in public galleries, commercial paintings required for floodlit photographic reproduction and paintings that would be improved by eliminating unbalanced glossy highlights.
