I use it over matte paper prints, works great, can't even tell there is a varnish, very matte.

Great product at good price
I'm a mixed media artist which means that I create layers and layers on my substrate using a verity of media, including oil pastels, ink, paper, acrylics, gel medium. I use this matte varnish on top of each layer to allow me to easily write or paint over previous layers. It has great coverage with a small amount used.

Visually, the finish is decent. However even once dry it's slightly tacky and attracts dust. (my sculptures also end up stuck to whatever they were standing on) I contacted Blick's tech support to see if I was using it wrong, or if there was anything I could do to harden the finish-- and apparently not. I was advised all acrylic finishes are sticky, but I should buy another type that wasn't as sticky. (right-step waterbased varnish) so you may just want to buy that.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Matte matters -- won't buy again
from Frankfort, Michigan
I have used Liquetex matte varnish, but decided to try Blick's version for the price. Unfortunately, I used it on a floor cloth without testing it. It produced a semi-gloss or satin finish, deginitely NOT matte.
Merchant response: Our Matte varnish provides best results with 2-6 layers. We always recommend testing this and any of our products on a sample before applying to any finished work. This way, you are sure of the properties and application needed. Our Experts are happy to help if you ever need any advice, give us a call at 1.800.933.2542.
