Liquitex Acrylic Varnishes, made from 100% acrylic polymer emulsions, form durable films when dry. They have excellent flexibility and resistance to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. Use them to provide lasting protection for artwork.
Note — Acrylic polymer varnishes permanently adhere to the surface, and are not removable. If you must be able to remove the varnish at a later date, use a non-polymer varnish such as Liquitex Soluvar Varnish. Polymer varnishes are not for use with oil paintings.
Final, clear, non-yellowing varnish has a satin finish. AP non-toxic.
Gloss Medium & Varnish
Liquitex Gloss Medium is also known as "Gloss Medium Varnish." Use it as a non-removable final picture varnish where a glossy protective coat is desired, or as a painting and glazing medium. It enhances the depth of color intensity, increases transparency and gloss, eases the flow of paint, and adds flexibility and adhesion to the paint film. Translucent when wet and transparent when dry, this 100% acrylic polymer varnish is watersoluble when wet and can be thinned. Use it as an extender, a fixative, a ground, or a varnish.
High Gloss Varnish
This low viscosity, permanent water-based varnish produces a high-gloss, clear finish. Translucent when wet, and clear when dry, it increases the gloss, depth, and intensity of colors. It provides a longer working time to eliminate drag, bubbles, and cloudiness. Sandable and non-tacky when dry, it is an excellent adhesive for collage and similar techniques. Not for use on flexible surfaces or over oil paint. Non-removable. Do not thin.
This medium viscosity varnish provides a satiny, non-glare, low-sheen final coat that intensifies dull colors without drastically reducing color depth. A 100% acrylic polymer varnish, Liquitex Matte Varnish is water-soluble when wet and can be thinned. Non-removable.
This water-resistant varnish delivers permanent, highly-durable protection that is flexible and non-yellowing when dry. A 100% acrylic polymer varnish, Liquitex Gloss Varnish is water-soluble when wet and can be thinned. Non-removable.

Technically, a varnish is supposed to be removable from a painting for restoration purposes.
Liquitex has used the term "varnish" for many years with its polymer varnishes, although they are not actually removable.
