"Great finish, easy to apply"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As it is winter and it is too cold to spray a coat of varnish on my game miniatures down in the garage, I bought a bottle of the satin varnish to use instead as it can be used indoors with minimal smell. Although the varnish is translucent, when you apply it in thin coats it goes on clear. I use 2 thin coats and the finished work is on a par with spray coating them. The advantage with using this varnish and a brush is it is possible to get in to the nooks and crannies that can be missed with spray varnishing. Clean up is with water so no issues there.

I've been using Vallejo Matte and Gloss but this stuff just tops if easily. Sometimes V.Gloss dries sticky due to humidity or not shaken etc but with Liquitexi, that shez ain't no problem.


Liquitex: Satin Varnish (237ml)

There are many misconceptions about whether or not it is necessary to varnish an acrylic painting. As a general rule, you should always varnish your acrylic work when possible. Varnishes are applied over dry paint films and have several purposes. The first and most important function is to protect the painting surface from the environment and protect the pigments from ultraviolet light. Secondly, varnishes can be used to change or unify a painting’s surface sheen. Liquitex varnishes come in several different sheens, which can all be intermixed for a customised sheen.
