A final varnish is used for protection of the completed painting. If your painting is too shiny or too matte, you can also correct the surface sheen by choosing the appropriate varnish.Atelier Interactive is also unique in that it dries to a lovely low sheen finish that maintains it’s high colour intensity but without a plastic look. When your painting is fully cured use Chroma Invisible Solvent Finishing Varnish to keep Atelier Interactive’s natural low sheen look, or for a higher sheen, use Chroma Satin Solvent Varnish or Gloss Solvent Finishing Varnish.
Are non-yellowing, self-leveling strippable varnishes which allow a painting to be cleaned more easily at a later date by swabbing with mineral turps. Chroma Solvent Varnishes are available in Satin, Gloss and Invisible. Invisible Varnish provides a protective coating and does not alter the surface quality of a painting. Recommended for use as a final varnish with Atelier Interactive paintings.
Are water based, non-toxic, self-leveling and can be used either as a medium to change the sheen levels of acrylic paints or as an over-varnish for acrylic painting. Provide a non-tacky protective coating. Atelier Matte, Satin and Gloss Medium & Varnish are creamy, mid-viscosity products made from hard acrylic emulsion. They are non-removable, however they can be overpainted.
We don't recommend Chroma Medium & Varnish as a final varnish to be used with Interactive because it absorbs the varnish before it can be spread over the dry paint. If you do want to use Medium & Varnish with Interactive we advise you to apply 2 coats of Fast Medium/Fixer to seal the surface of the painting before varnishing.
