Quality product, just doesn't go very far....
By Aeryn Lyte
Comments about Liquitex Spray Varnish:
I purchased one can and used it to cover one 60" x 30" canvas; regrettably it did not contain enough product to finish the job to my liking. I will stick with the bottle from now on, because I use so much of it. That being said, it was easy to use, no malfunction with the can, and the result was very nice. For smaller projects, where a brush is undesirable, this would be a good choice.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Liquitex acrylic spray varnish – satin
By Frank the Younger
from Clemmons, NC
I use Liquitex spray varnish (satin) to seal, protect and unify the surfaces of acrylic paintings on Arches rag paper before framing. The delivery is smooth and consistent. The finish is even and I really like the way the work looks when it's had a night to sit – the surfaces are very fresh and the satin finish is just right for a "just painted" feel. If there is a downside, the cans are small and don't last that long (don't know that anything can actually be done about that) and you should definitely use in a well-ventilated area as the fumes are pretty nasty.

This made applying varnish much, much easier than it was before. I was previously using liquitex pouring medium or gloss medium as a top coat varnish on my paintings, but they left brush strokes after being applied. This spray leaves no strokes, takes less than a minute to apply, dries quickly, and looks great. I am very happy with the outcome.
A great product
Odor was not as strong as some I have use. Needed multiple coats to get a good shine.
By Ted Connolly
from Bayonne, N.J.
Generally, I brush on varnish, both satin and gloss. Looking to try a spray, I purchased a can that was flammable and the odor was horrendous. I smelled it for days. Knowing there had to be a water based spray product, I searched and found Liquitex sprays. The final product is very good and the odor is not bad, however it does linger awhile. I will definitely purchase it again but also will use the brush on, as well.
Liquitex Spray Varnish
from New York
Great price, compared to the big online franchises. Quality product. The finish is fantastic and really adds that extra professional quality to the work.
Great coverage and not too glossy!
from Raleigh, NC
I use this product as a sealant and final coat. It really brings out the color especially darker colors for me. I tried other sprays and they were too glossy. You can control the intensity of the gloss by limiting your passes. I also tried paint on varnish and liked that effect to but sometimes the brush strokes would show adding unflattering stripes.
from orlando, fl
I have used this product, in the past, as a varnish - both the gloss and matt. Now, I have been using the matt spray varnish as a fixative, for colored pencil work. I had trouble with other fixstives because the 'carrier' in the fixative seemed to be disolving some of the lighter colors. I chose the Liquitex varnish because it is water based and would not dissolve wax. I have been pleased with the results.
