I like my pieces to be matte. So I do what you do but only gloss spray first and then matte varnish afterwards.

I am a recent follower as of Sunday or so and I really have to thank you! You have inspired me to get back into practicing my art! Your tips etc are also a huge help! *Hugs*
Thank you Lisa! Not only are you such a talented artist, how you present your tips and tutorials are awesome! It has helped me incredibly. Keep it up!
Thank you so MUCH! I was frustrated on how to varnish my painting then I found your video and did a Happy dance 😀
Thank you so much for sharing. This is so helpful.
Omg – I just found you, and you’ve answered all my dilemmas already! For years, I’ve been looking at how to vernier my paintings, but gave never been happy with the result. I can’t wait to varnish my paintings now! I love the Liquitex brand, and have it in my studio. I just haven’t been sure whether to use matte or clear. Thankyou!
Is it really necessary to burnish? What happens if I don´t burnish the paintings?
This was helpful
Is this one ok to use too?
Hello Lisa, I was wondering, How long do you wait to use the spray varnish after you finish your painting?
I’ve thought of spraying Liquitex airbrush medium for varnishing. It’s high acrylic content, and it seems pretty glossy, and spraying it on it should go evenly.
Lisa, thanks so much for posting this video! Just what I needed right now. I have a question though…. If we are concerned about the glare on the finished, varnished painting, could we use a matte finish varnish (I’m assuming there is such a thing). Thanks again!
how long do i have to wait for acrylic to dry so i can use varnish?
Have you had any issues mixing the two different brands together? I would guess ingredient comparisons of the two brands (Krylon/Liquitex) would answer part of my question. Is there a reason you don’t keep it uniform and use the Liquitex Matte varnish spray?
Great tutorial. Do you usually paint the edges of your canvas, or do you leave it white?
I’ve used Krylon clear coat matte spray paint for clearing over some illustrations of mine because they’re mixed media. I want to eliminate the sheen so I can make quality prints and I’m wondering if anyone has experience with smoothing out the little dust spots that usually settle on there? I’m thinking 0000 steel wool will do or maybe car finishing sand paper 2000-2500 grit… Any thoughts out there?
Thank you! The links for the products are very helpful. Subscribed!
Is the liquitex gloss medium and varnish the same as liquitex gloss varnish? Thank you so much for all you do.
