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.

Protective and makes artwork have an extra pop
Comments about Golden Acrylic Polymer Varnishes:
I use this on my acrylic paintings when finished. Gives the paintings more of the wet look you get from oils. (I use the gloss finish.) protects my work. Appreciate that it is water soluble and doesn't have a strong scent so I can use indoors.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A solid product
I wish it weren't toxic; I use it outdoors. Otherwise, it's an excellent varnish. #sweepstakes
Exactly what I needed!
By Patricia Lintner
I have done an isolation coat on my work which gives it a glossy look. I am not a big fan of the glossy look so purchased the satin varnish. Once applied it did exactly what I had hoped for. I will continue to use this product on my artwork. Plus the price is the best on Dick Blick!
I would buy this and we need this product for success

Best used after applying an isolation coat to your acrylic paint
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
