Welcome to dickblick
Golden Polymer Varnish with UVLS (UltraViolet Light Stabilizers) is a waterborne acrylic polymer varnish that dries to a protective, flexible, dust-resistant surface. Use it as a final sealant over acrylic paint.
Polymer Varnishes must be thinned before use. They have been formulated thicker than traditional varnishes, to maintain an even suspension of matting agents. This ensures more consistency in surface reflectance.
Varnishes are available in a highly reflective Gloss, and an exceptionally flat Matte. The matte varnish will lighten dark value colors.
This varnish is removable with ammonia for restoration purposes. For interior use only.

Protect acrylics for the long haul
By Heat Artist
from Orlando, FL
Used this to varnish and protect my acrylics. Used with a isolation layer. Like that this protects my artwork. Gives acrylics a nice shine, goes on clear. Little order, water soluble. First time using this kind of product, so can't compare to other brands of similar products.
from Boston, MA
This varnish is fantastic, easy to use and leaves a beautiful finish. Recommended 2-3 coats.

Golden products always shine! Why not use the best when creating your work? I use Golden paint and its varnishes for a consistent, top drawer finish. Love that it has UV protection too!
For Sealing Ink Jet prints
from Sumnerville, MI
I mix this acrylic polymer varnish with a bit of water to seal ink jet prints that have cured for at least 24 hours. The varnish creates a thin yet protective surface that accepts a variety of treatments -- pastel, acrylic paint, and encaustic. When used alone, it brightens the ink jet image.
I continue to trust this product to protect my art pieces.
from Great Smoky Mountains
I find that Golden products always produce quality results and continue to use them in producing my artwork.
I will buy this product again

Worked out Fine!
Ease of application over an isolation coat made my acrylic paintings safe and professional. No problem!
Love these affordable, quality vanishes for the price.

I've been relying on Golden Polymer Varnish for two years to protect my collages from UV light and fading. I like that it comes in different glosses, and that it can be removed without disturbing any layers of acrylic medium underneath. It applies easily and a small amount of varnish covers a large area.
