Matisse MM29 Final Varnish Satin Finish (Turps Based) 250ml

Final Varnish Satin Finish is Matisse Medium MM29. This varnish produces a hard, non-yellowing, protective coating with a semi-gloss sheen formulated to match the sheen of Matisse paint films. It is nearly invisible with a low sheen level whilst remaining clear and free of haze. Unlike water-based varnishes, this varnish is removable or strippable, and can be re-dissolved in mineral turpentine, which has no effect on Matisse acrylic paints: thus, a painting may be thoroughly cleaned and re-varnished without affecting the painted surface. MM29 Satin Finish Varnish is an ideal varnish for restoration work (may be used on oil paintings).

A minimum of two coats is recommended for a consistent varnish finish. Drying time is approximately 6-8 hours, depending upon weather conditions. This product is also suitable for use over oil paints after completely drying (approximately 6-12 months).

This varnish should be stirred thoroughly as it contains a matting agent, which will, in storage, tend to settle out and fall to the bottom of the container. It is clear and cannot be easily seen; therefore, always mix this varnish with a clean stick or mixing spatula before use. Shaking the container is not recommended as bubbles may form that can impact the final finish.

DISCLAIMER: Although Matisse Derivan products are formulated to the highest standards and extensively tested, we strongly recommend a small test be undertaken before any varnish is applied to the final surface.

It is recommended to clean your brush as soon as you finish the application. Always clean brushes with mineral turpentine first. This will remove most of the traces of varnish from the brush. Finish by using liquid or bar of soap in the palm of your hand and scrub the brush back and forth until you form a lather. Rinse well and let dry flat. Using soap and lukewarm water will condition the brush's hair and prevent it from becoming stiff after drying due to any turpentine (or another solvent) residue left on them.
