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.
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.
Final, clear, non-yellowing varnish has a satin finish. AP non-toxic.

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.

Compared to more expensive competitive brands of acrylic varnish, the Liquitex product performs very well. It is easy to apply, dries quickly, is even and absolutely clear. I would not bother to spend the money on the more expensive alternatives. A great buy!

Goes on smoothly
What a lovely product!
from San Diego, Ca.
I fabricate puppets and masks. The hands are cast out of industrial latex, and after painting they need a fixative for sure. Hope this will be long lasting, although not waterproof.

Easy to use and amazing results !
This was my first time using varnish on my acrylic painting. The outcome was great! All the colors stood out beautifully, and left my painting with an awesome glossy finish.

This product is great use for non-toxic applications (with kids / washable if on clothes). As a varnish or adhesive, looks great as a final finish or collage work.
