In my quest for the best methods and materials to use to mount and seal my art, I’ve discovered a new varnish that I like to use for the final finish on my watercolors that I mount on acrylic-embellished canvas. Liquitex Satin Varnish has a great, light consistency for a final varnish finish and contains a UV filter to protect against UV damage.
I’m currently using this varnish “straight up”, without mixing in any matte varnish because I like the satin balance of gloss and matte. Here in Denver, Meininger always seems to have this in stock.
