Best matte spray
from northern wisconsin
Comments about Krylon #1311 Matte Finish:
I have tried virtually EVERY matte spray available through Blick. This Krylon one outperforms every other comparable spray I've tried, and does so at a better price than most. While it's not perfect, it still spits & spatters a bit, but it does less of that than anything else I've tried. I use it to spray photographs that I've handcolored.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this product to coat paper which has been finely sanded so that I can apply ink from Faber-Castell Pitt artist pens to the paper without it bleeding. Works great to kill gloss on finished works so that the overall finish is consistent.

Great Product, Great Value
By Little Pup
I was a little apprehensive about spraying this on a treasured watercolor for fear of ruining it but honestly, it did not change in any way the color. In fact, you cannot detect that the watercolors I have used it on have been sprayed with anything! Very pleased that I gave it a try and I will continue to use it with confidence.

Gray haze and chunks of ?
from Saint Paul MN
I have used this product in the past with passable results. This time however, after following the labeling instructions Shake well, dust free environment, correct temperature, and ventilation, I sprayed on a thin first coat as recommended. When I returned 30 min. later there was a gray haze over my entire painting. It did wipe off with minimal effort and the varnish underneath seamed unaffected. As I began spraying on the second coat the varnish came out of the can with the appearance of gray primer paint. The can was also spitting white chunks of material that protruded through the surface of this gray varnish. I was able to minimize the chunkiness but not without sustaining damage to the painting underneath. This will never happen to me again as I won't risk destroying days of work on the chance that Krylon products will operate correctly."Caveat Emptor"
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear about the difficulties you experienced using this finish. Many factors, such as relative humidity, can affect the opacity of the finish layer.

"I would buy this product again and again
from Chicago IL
from northern wi
I handpaint photographs and need to seal them with some kind of protectant. I've tried Golden and Liquitex as well as Krylon. The liquitex really has the best "liquidy" finishing look to it, but it splatters too easily no matter how much I shake it first. Similar thing with the Golden sprays. So I always come back to Krylon's matte finish because it works.
