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.

Comments about Golden Acrylic Polymer Varnishes:
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.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Works well but you need a really nice brush to prevent brushstrokes on a glossy surface such as claybord.

It was easy for me to research the pros & cons of this and similar products to make my choice. I found the product price and cost of shipping to Alaska very reasonable! I also received my order in a timely fashion.

Golden varnish leaves my artwork looking professional, it is easy to prepare for spray application and it flows beautifully out of my mini spray gun. A must have for any intermediate or advanced level artist.

The best varnish there is
from Ocean City NJ
No other varnish works quite like Golden. The matte is truly matte. Other matte varnishes still get a shine to them, and that drives me insane.
Why have I waited so long to try this?!!
from Mountains of CA
Am using the gloss varnish on mixed media paintings done on rough, reclaimed wood. WOW! It works beautifully and it's shiiiiny! Dries quickly, looks great, and is removable. But truly, READ THE DIRECTIONS. For me, this varnish is not as touchy as the directions make it out to be, but it does take a little practice. Love, love, love the results! Wish I'd tried it sooner, but hey! I'll be using it for the rest of my born days. :) And Blick has the best price!
