Finishing varnishes


Varnish for watercolours

for atomizer


Varnish for technical water-colour proceedings. Protects against dust and humidity. Glossy; colourless; non-yellowing; very fast drying; based on alcohol. (Attention: don´t mix with varnishes based on mineral spirit; brushes to be cleaned with alcohol; intensifies colour tones and increases transparency of watercolour papers!)

Thinner: Ethanol




    • Shake well before use.
    • Varnish for water-colours is ready to use, but can be diluted with alcohol / ethanol.
    • Product should be applied with a special fixative diffuser.
    • Please clean tools as soon as possible with alcohol / ethanol.
    • The product is based on “alcohol” and cannot be mixed with those based on “mineral spirit”.
    • The level of gloss depends in accordance to absorbance of the surface, painting technique and the thickness of the film.
    • The subsequent fixing of the surface of a picture produced using materials low in binding agents, like water-colours or gouache colours, may cause the colour shade to become significantly darker. Using too much varnish frequently causes a loss of “lightness”. The product also may makes the support, for example the paper, more transparent.
    • The varnish coats normally used in practice give no special UV protection to the paints used! For this reason, we recommend that you use high-quality and lightfast artists´ paints from the outset as far as possible.
    • For the ideal protection of water-colour paintings we additionally recommend using special glass for frames.
    • Close immediately after use.
    • Store in a cool and dry place.
    • Individual pre-tests are required.
