Krylon Gallery Series UV Archival Varnish

Krylon UV Archival Varnish offers the highest UV protection available in a protective coating. Its non-yellowing formula protects against fading, dirt, moisture, and discoloration in artworks created using acrylic, oil, and watercolor paints, as well as oil pastels and colored pencils. UV Archival Varnish is removable for conservation purposes.

Although the varnish dries to touch in 10–15 minutes under normal conditions, wait two hours before handling artwork to avoid fingerprints. The manufacturer recommends the following finishes, based on the medium. Follow the manufacturer's general recommendations for the level of finish, or enhance a work of art by choosing a higher or lower level of finish as desired:

  • Acrylic paints: semi-gloss or satin
  • Watercolor and oil pastel: matte
  • Colored pencil: satin or matte
  • Oil Paintings: gloss
  • Digital prints: semi-gloss or matte

Krylon's Gallery Series Artist Sprays and Clear Coatings are sure to become the artist's choice for protecting, preserving, and beautifying works of art.

All Gallery Series products include a powerful combination of Hindered Amine Light Stabilizer (HALS) and an exclusive UV Absorber (UVA) for maximum protection from ultraviolet light, and advanced protection against smudging, smearing, fading, yellowing, cracking, moisture damage, and more.
