Final Varnish Matte Finish | Turps Based

AVAILABLE IN STORE ONLY - FLAMMABLE


The Final Varnish Matt Finish is Matisse Medium MM15. This varnish produces a hard, non-yellowing, protective coating with a subdued matt sheen formulated to match the sheen of Matisse paint films. It is nearly invisible with one of the lowest sheen levels available, 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. MM15 Final Varnish Matt Finish is an ideal varnish for use in restoration work (may be used on oil paintings).

How To Use Final Varnish Matt Finish

A minimum of two coats are recommended for a consistent subdued sheen finish. Drying time is approximately 6-8 hours, depending upon weather conditions. This product is also suitable for use over oil paints after completely dry (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 before any varnish is applied to the final surface.

 How To Clean Up Final Varnish Matt Finish

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.
