Golden : Varnish & Topcoats


Polymer Varnish with UVLS (Water Soluble) : Polymer Varnish with UVLS (UltraViolet Light Stabilizers) is a waterborne acrylic polymer varnish that dries to a protective, flexible, dust resistant surface over acrylic paint. Removable with ammonia. Recommended for interior use only. Available in gloss, satin & matte finishes.

MSA (Mineral Spirit Acrylic) Varnish with UVLS (Spirit Based) MSA (Mineral Spirit Acrylic) Varnish with UVLS (UltraViolet Light Stabilizers) is a Mineral Spirit Acrylic-borne resin system. MSA Varnish forms a tougher, less permeable film than waterborne acrylic emulsion varnishes. It reduces dirt penetration and surface marring, offering an extremely level film with less foam and fewer pinholes. Removable with turpentine after drying. Recommended for either interior or exterior use. For use on acrylics, oils, temperas, watercolours and various other media. Available in gloss, satin & matte finishes.

Archival Varnish Aerosol with UVLS : GOLDEN Archival Aerosol MSA Varnish w/UVLS provides a finish layer for fine artworks, is removable for conservation purposes, and offers excellent dirt, dust and moisture resistance in a flexible film. It is produced with clear, 100% acrylic solution polymer and contains UltraViolet Light filters and Stabilizers (UVLS) to provide archival protection, inhibiting light damage. Fast-drying.

The unique adjustable fan spray tip allows for precise application with reduced overspray. The products adhere to a wide variety of surfaces and paint mediums, including acrylics, oils, alkyds, watercolors, temperas, and ink-jet prints. The 10 fl. oz. cans contain enough product to achieve approximately 25-30 square feet of coverage. Available in gloss, satin & matte finishes.

Golden Topcoat with UVLS : Golden Gel Topcoats w/UVLS are formulated with 100% acrylic polymer dispersion incorporating a system of Ultra Violet Light Filters and Stabilizers (UVLS) for protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation. When used as a topcoat they help lower overall water-sensitivity and limit air exposure, while providing increased durability for fragile surfaces.

The topcoat is not intended for high wear items. It dries to a permanent, flexible, non-removable coating. The Gloss version dries with great clarity and a highly reflective surface, while the Semi-Gloss dries to a translucent, more wax-like finish and like all topcoats may appear to alter color saturation. They are fully compatible with other Golden Acrylic Colours, Mediums, Gels and Pastes, and can be blended with these products in any proportion. While formulated primarily as a topcoat, they can be used like other Gels to modify sheen and transparency, create texture, provide a clear barrier or coating for subsequent paint or other materials, and to extend product.

Apply as desired using brush, palette knife or other tools. The thick consistency of the Golden Gel Topcoats will retain tool marks and textures, although the marks will relax slightly during drying. Apply carefully to avoid generation of foam or entrapping air. May be thinned with water to modify viscosity.

The Gel Topcoats, when used as a final layer, should greatly increase the longevity and lightfastness of whatever media you are working with. Overall they will lower water-sensitivity, limit air exposure, and provide substantial UV protection.

Available in gloss & semi-gloss.
