Matisse Derivan - Proudly Australian Owned and Made
MM6 POLYMER MATT VARNISH (WATER- BASED)
Used as a final varnish over a dried, well-cured acrylic painting when a flat, matt or very low sheen is required (and the use of MM15 Matt Varnish (turps-based) is not appropriate).
Most suitable as a protective coating particularly over large works exposed to damage in public galleries, commercial paintings required for floodlit photographic reproduction and paintings that would be improved by eliminating unbalanced glossy highlights.
Although it can be used in a mixture with Matisse paint, its effect within the paint would not be as pronounced as when using MM5 Matt Medium which contains a far greater percentage of flattening agents. For more details, see the "Varnish" section.
