Translucent when wet, this varnish dries to a non-tacky, hard, flexible surface that is resistant to dirt retention and discoloration, protecting brilliant acrylic colors from the harsh elements.

  • Archival and water resistant when dry
  • Non-yellowing and non-fogging

Liquitex® Matte Varnish is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tricky to use, very streaky I do acrylic pour painting and got this as part of an experiment to try out the 4 main finishes: matte, satin, gloss, high gloss. I mostly use gloss because I love how it looks. My application process is to mix with about 40% water and apply with a folder rag. I do 4-8 thin coats, rotating 90 degrees and waiting about 2 hours between coats. After several coats I realized that I was getting streaks/swirls left in the finish, something I didn't get from any other finish. I tried to correct by gently swiping the last 2 layers, but you can see the results: more streaks. I'm going to try other application techniques since I still have nearly a full bottle of this, but I'm glad this was on a piece I knew was for this experiment. The other Liquitex varnish finishes went on easily and look great, so it's only the matte that I can't recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I use this all the time on paintings and its good I love the matte surface. I go through gallons of this every year. Once in a while I get a bad bottle that has lumps but I exchange it for a new one. Usually its because it sat too long on the shelf or something. I just do one quick coat, I use the big taklon brushes a new one each time it leaves an excellent finish. Left off one star just because of the occasional lumps, also they should offer this in gallon size the cost is high for those who use it to coat large surfaces.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used for dolls faces - waste of money I tried using this to seal Monster High Dolls after I painted their face. This was horrible, smudged everything. Tried a couple of times. Only used a minuscule amount and now I'm stuck with the rest of the bottle. No returns accepted because it was used. What a waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very lumpy Bought it in store. It was extremely lumpy and there is no way to spread it evenly. Full of lots of little small grits or so - no matter how much I stirred or shaked it - this did not go away. Not useable at all and a total waste of time and money !! I also tried the satin and that was nice and fluid. So maybe this was just an old bottle - but then they should not sell it anymore...
